CVSA’s International Roadcheck: May 17-19, 2022

CVSA’s annual three-day International Roadcheck is scheduled for May 17-19, 2022. 

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck, the largest enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, will take place May 17-19, 2022. During this time, CVSA-certified inspectors will conduct compliance, inspection and enforcement initiatives throughout Canada, Mexico and the U.S. 

Each year, CVSA focuses on a specific aspect of roadside inspection; this year’s focus will be on wheel ends. Wheels are the components that support the heavy loads carried by commercial vehicles, help maintain stability and control and are critical for braking. CVSA reports that “violations involving wheel end components historically account for about one quarter of the vehicle out-of-service violations discovered during International Roadcheck, and past International Roadcheck data routinely identified wheel end components as a top 10 vehicle violation.” 

During the three-day inspection, inspectors check both the motor vehicles along with the driver’s documentation and credentials using CVSA’s North American Standard Inspection program procedures. Any vehicle or driver in violation of the North American Standard Inspection will be placed out-of-service until those violations or conditions are addressed. 

Both drivers and vehicles that pass the North American Standard Level I or Level V inspection without any violations may receive a CVSA decal. CVSA states that “in general, a vehicle with a valid CVSA decal will not be re-inspected during the three months the decal is valid.” 

In consideration of Covid-19, CVSA has stated that “commercial motor vehicle inspectors and drivers, law enforcement personnel will conduct inspections following their departments’ health and safety protocols during International Roadcheck.”

Odyssey Logistics & Technology is committed to developing a safe work environment and logistics network for its employees and customers and will continue to bring you the latest updates and results of these safety checks.
