How to Read Your NSC Carrier Profile
If you have an NSC number, then the NSC Program Office has a Carrier Profile for you company. A Carrier Profile summarizes any and all incidents recorded under your National Safety Code number including accidents, the on-road safety performance of your vehicles and drivers including any contraventions, the results of any Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance inspections and audits, and shows your overall safety rating. The profile's reporting period usually covers 3 years.
It is important to review your Carrier Profile regulary, and ensure that all on-road incidents included are in fact accurate and belong under your NSC number. If you note any errors, they should be reported to the NSC Program Office to investigate and correct if needed.
