Q: Which carriers are affected by CSA 2010?
A: Any interstate carrier that has a US DOT number is covered by the CSA 2010 program, no matter what “type” of carrier they are (for-hire, private, flatbed, van, utility, construction, etc.), what size carrier they are, or what type of vehicles they operate (CDL required versus non-CDL required vehicles). 

Q: Are intrastate carriers affected by CSA2010?
A: It depends on if their state requires intrastate carriers to get a DOT number, if they upload intrastate carrier violation and accident data into the Safetynet/MCMIS system, and if they do anything with the output of the system. What the states that require intrastate carriers to have a DOT number will do with CSA 2010 remains to be seen.

A: No. There are no waivers. Any interstate carrier that has a US DOT number will be involved in the CSA 2010 program. 

Q: How does CSA 2010 affect Canadian and Mexican carriers?
A: Any interstate carrier with a US DOT number will be involved in the CSA 2010 program, no matter where they are domiciled.
