PRISM What is PRISM?
The Performance and Registration Information Systems Management (PRISM) program developed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) links the commercial vehicle registration process to motor carrier safety to achieve two purposes:
Determine the fitness level of the motor carrier responsible for safety (MCRS) prior to issuing the registration.
Influence motor carriers to improve their safety performance through an improvement process and, where necessary, the application of registration sanctions.
The PRISM program includes two major processes – the Commercial Vehicle Registration Process (Registration) and Enforcement, which work in parallel to identify motor carriers and hold them responsible for the safety of their operation. The performance of unsafe carriers is improved through a comprehensive system of identification, education, awareness, data gathering, safety monitoring and treatment.
How does PRISM affect the Florida IRP Registration Process?
The USDOT Number and Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) of the Motor Carrier Responsible for Safety (MCRS) of every vehicle registered must be identified during the registration process.
Information for Completing Your IRP Application or Renewal
If you are filing an Original Application in your name and the vehicles you are registering are leased to others (lessees) who are the MCRS for the vehicle; you must provide your USDOT Number and TIN at the account level only if you are registered with DOT as a Motor Carrier. The USDOT Number and TIN for all the lessees who are the MCRS for the vehicles registered under the account must be provided at the vehicle level. You must also mark the appropriate box indicating whether the MCRS is expected to change during the registration year. A copy of a valid lease with the lessee will be required.
