On April 1, 2017, new and updated out-of-service criteria will go into effect for commercial motor vehicles. The new and updated criteria have been put together by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance of Law Enforcement and Industry. A new edition of the OOS-criteria handbook, which contains all the new and updated criteria, is now available for $35 for CVSA members, and $45 for non-members.
There have been few significant changes made in the last few years, however new out-of-service conditions related to the up and coming electronic log mandate that goes into effect December 18, 2017 are included. Quite a few clarifications have also been added to help remove confusion regarding certain OOS violations, along with changes to out-of-service conditions related to Inactive U.S. DOT numbers.
