The national Inspection Timeliness measure results show the number of States within each rating. A State’s timeliness rating is based on the percentage of the State’s evaluated inspection records reported within 21 days of the inspection. These inspections were first uploaded between 02/01/2019 and 01/31/2020. Learn how this rating is calculated.

Data Source: MCMIS inspection records for 12 months representing interstate and intrastate carriers, and includes large trucks and buses. Note: FMCSA experienced system issues from July 8 to July 20, 2018 that may have caused a delay in State SAFETYNET record uploads. As a result, States will not be held accountable for late records during this time - only records reported on-time will count towards the State Timeliness measure.
