North American Standard Vehicle Out-of-Service Criteria

(1) The North American Standard Vehicle Out-of-Service Criteria, published by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, in effect April 1, 2014, is adopted by and incorporated into this rule. Inspection violations identified in the Out-of-Service Criteria may be subject to one or more of the following:

(a) Out-of-Service Condition: When any motor vehicle by reason of its mechanical condition or loading, is determined to be so unsafe as to likely cause an accident or breakdown or when such conditions would likely contribute to loss of control of the vehicle by the driver, said vehicle must be placed out-of-service. No motor carrier shall permit or require nor shall any person operate any motor vehicle declared and marked “out-of-service” until all required repairs of violations which resulted in the out-of-service condition have been completed. If, at the discretion of the inspector, it is less hazardous to the public to relocate the vehicle, it will be towed, transported or escorted only at the direction of an official authority.

(b) Other: Violations other than out-of-service conditions detected during the inspection process will not preclude the completion of the current trip or dispatch. However, such violations must be corrected or repaired prior to redispatch.

North American Standard Hazardous Material Out-of-Service Criteria

(1) The North American Standard Hazardous Materials Out-of-Service Criteria, published by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, in effect April 1, 2014, is adopted and incorporated in this rule. Inspection violations identified in the Out-of-Service Criteria may be subject to out-of-service action. Condition(s) categorized as “Out-of-Service” must not be allowed to continue in commerce until the condition(s) is/are corrected and the shipment complies with Title 49, CFR. If at the discretion of the inspector, it is less hazardous to the public to relocate the vehicle, it will be towed, transported or escorted to a safe location only at the direction of an official authority.
