What databases are used to determine whether a carrier’s vehicles are qualified to bypass?

by: prepassnow

The data rules overseen by the Board of Directors require HELP to utilize only the most current, most accurate data sets to electronically screen carriers and determine their fitness to bypass. As a result, HELP not only checks standard data uploaded by participating states to SAFER (carrier records maintained by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration), but goes well beyond that. HELP regularly purchases data from states and provinces as it becomes available to acquire carrier data that states do not upload, utilizing both electronic and manual processes, if necessary, to ensure that only the most current data goes into the bypass decision.
