Motor Carriers can now view the inspection data the FMCSA will use to calculate CSA 2010 percentile rankings when the system comes on-line later this year. BASIC scores have not yet been assigned to the data in this preview system, but one can calculate potential inspection weights by viewing the current BASIC violation severity rankings here: https://csa2010.fmcsa.dot.gov/Documents/SMS_AppendixA_ViolationsList.xls
From the FMCSA:
FMCSA is pleased
to announce the Comprehensive Safety Analysis (CSA) 2010 Data Preview, which will
allow individual motor carriers to review their safety performance data by the
CSA 2010 Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs). The
Data Preview begins on April 12, 2010 and ends on November 30, 2010, the
national launch date for the CSA 2010 safety enforcement program.
During the data preview period, motor carriers are encouraged to closely examine their performance data and immediately address any safety problems. This is also an opportunity for motor carriers to update and verify their safety performance data online.
This important step is designed to focus motor carriers on identifying and addressing unsafe behaviors that can lead to crash risk. It also underscores FMCSA's commitment to data integrity and the motor carrier industry's responsibility for ensuring commercial vehicle safety.
Complete details on the Data Preview and the CSA 2010 implementation schedule are published in the Federal Register. The CSA 2010 implementation schedule supports the critical importance of incorporating the findings from over 30 months of operational model testing in nine CSA 2010 pilot states.

Remember that data from the last 24 months will be the first data on which your CSA 2010 percentiles will be based. This data preview allows carriers an opportunity to see where they currently stand and take pro-active measures over the next several months to clear up their records in anticipation of full CSA 2010 implementation.
