FMCSA to Accept Official Mexican Standard as Comparable to the CVSA Based Inspection

FMCSA publicó el pasado 16 de marzo un anuncio comunicando que van a empezar a aceptar la Norma Oficial Mexicana (NOM) como inspecciones periódicas comparables a la inspección basada en el CVSA. La aceptación de la NOM-68 por parte de la FMCSA significa que aquellos transportistas domiciliados en México que operan en los Estados Unidos deben garantizar que sus vehículos comerciales son inspeccionados anualmente de acuerdo a la exigencia de la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT). Los transportistas mexicanos deberán conservar una copia del informe de inspección y un sello / etiqueta la cual debe ser colocada en el vehículo con el fin de satisfacer las necesidades periódicas de inspección en los Estados Unidos. Esta acción es efectiva inmediatamente y reconocerá todas los sellos / etiquetas emitidos desde el 1º de octubre del 2015.

FMCSA published a notice on March 16 announcing that they will begin accepting the Norma Oficial Mexicana ((NOM) or Official Mexican Standard) as a comparable periodic inspection to the CVSA based inspection. FMCSA's acceptance of NOM 68 means that Mexico-domiciled motor carriers operating in the United States must ensure that their CMVs are inspected annually as required by the Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT). Mexican carriers will still have to retain a copy of the inspection report and a sticker/decal must be affixed to the vehicle in order to satisfy the periodic inspection requirements in the United States. This action is effective immediately and they will honor all stickers issued on or after October 1, 2015.
