U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Previews Spring 2023 Regulatory Actions

Several initiatives building off earlier comment periods and stakeholder processes


Earlier this month, the FMCSA released their Spring 2023 Regulatory agenda, previewing timelines for key regulatory actions for the remainder of the year and beyond. While other actions will be taken by the agency, the agenda focuses on the most impactful to industry and stakeholders, as measured through compliance time and estimated costs.

USTRANSCOM Peak Season Call (22 Jun)

Attached are notes and slides from the 22 Jun Peak Season call.  As usual, the slide Password is USTRANSCOM.


TRANSCOM acknowledged some difficulty they are having getting the peak season invite and slides out to industry. For some reason, when sent to industry, the emails/messages are often rejected by their system. They are working to resolve it.


For those of you who have been tracking the issue of the IT22 mid-cycle change to fuel surcharge rules for delivery from SIT, COL Gipson stated today that the policy change to the IT22 on this topic from October of 2022, stands. And she mentioned she was deliberately not going to answer further questions on the topic in that forum.  IAM has asked for a teleconference with COL Gipson on this topic.

USTRANSCOM Industry Call (23 Jun)

TRANSCOM held a second meeting for the week on Friday, 23 Jun, which was previously held every Thursday or every other Thursday in the afternoon. Here are the links to the notes and slides; as usual, the slide password is USTRANSCOM.


Much of the content presented by USTRANSCOM was identical to the previoius day’s Peak Season call. There are a couple of different slides presented at this meeting and noted in my notes.


The most significant conversation from this call was the discussion on TRANSCOM’s stance with regard to the IT22 513B delivery from SIT fuel surcharge. TRANSCOM Director stated they are standing by the change they made to the IT22 in October, and then clarified that it wasn’t a “change” but a clarification. Industry reps took up the discussion on many fronts, and IAM is meeting to discuss the overall situation further.


The other thing stated by the J9 Director is that TRANSCOM will hold a full Domestic Rate Filing for the Spring of 2024. That’s something I personally had not heard before.
