Attention Motor Carriers, IEPs, M&R vendors and Facility Operators

As follow-up to the IANA notice dated Aug. 9, 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced in the Aug. 20, 2010, Federal Register that it would extend the compliance date, with respect to the No Defect Driver Vehicle Inspection report (DVIR) submission requirement, outlined in section 390.42 (b), until June 30, 2011.

The FMCSA has determined that a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) will be issued to the roadability docket (2005-23315) in order to seek public comments on the proposal to eliminate the portion of 390.42 (b) that requires motor carriers to prepare and transmit a DVIR to the Intermodal Equipment Provider upon return of the intermodal equipment, when the equipment has no known damage, defects or deficiencies. Pending further FMCSA action, if intermodal equipment does not have a reportable defect (as listed in 396.11 (a) (2)), upon return of the equipment, a DVIR is not required.

IANA offers a variety of ways for Motor Carriers to submit Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs):

  • Web Portal
  • Report DVIRs virtually through an Internet based user interface.

  • EDI
  • Report DVIRs electronically via an EDI 322 transaction set.Please refer to the EDI & Data Transfer Tab.

  • IVR
  • An Integrated Voice Response System (IVR) allowing the driver to dial a toll free number in order to submit the DVIR. The system collects the required DVIR data elements and returns a unique DVIR number.

  • XML or Fixed Format or CSV
  • Motor Carriers can also transmit DVIR data to IANA via any of these formats.

    Motor Carriers must register before using IANA's DVIR services. Likewise, all drivers must be registered in IANA's Intermodal Driver Database in order to process DVIRs.
