What is the Inspection Selection System (ISS)?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Inspection Selection System (ISS) is used at roadside inspection stations to help inspectors identify and prioritize motor carriers for safety inspections. The Alliance uses ISS as a preliminary guide to determine which trucks may be eligible for bypass. ISS helps to determine eligibility for bypass and establish a recommended random pull-in rate to periodically verify that the system is working as it should.
