FMCSA Revises Accident Reporting Guidance

February 25, 2022 10:00 AM | Jennifer Bruce, CMP (Administrator)

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has issued revised guidance on the use of the term “medical treatment” in the reporting of accidents. The revised guidance explains that an x-ray examination is a diagnostic procedure and should no longer be considered ‘‘medical treatment’’ in determining whether a crash should be included on a motor carrier’s accident register. This guidance is applicable as of February 25, 2022 and expires February 25, 2027.

The guidance may be found here: 2022-03997.pdf (www.govinfo.gov).
