Feb. 24, 2021
Updated pass-fail criteria for inspections, which replaces all previous versions, available in multiple formats

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 2021 North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria now is available for purchase.

The new criteria go into effect on April 1. The 2021 version replaces and supersedes all previous versions.

The out-of-service criteria are the pass-fail criteria for inspections. The criteria identify critical vehicle inspection items and detail the criteria that can prohibit a motor carrier or driver from operating a commercial motor vehicle for a specified period of time or until the condition is corrected.

CVSA offers different formats of the new criteria:

CVSA also said it soon will release an app containing out-of-service criteria, along with inspection bulletins, real-life photo examples of vehicle and hazardous materials/dangerous goods violations, access to the CVSA Learning portal for online training, inspection procedures, operational policies, inspection, and educational videos, brochures and more.
