A Service of the Intermodal association of North America
CALVERTON, MD, Nov. 18, 2013 — The Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) was pleased to announce the release of the new Driver Vehicle Examination Report (DVER) Notification Service at the 2013 Intermodal Expo recently held in Houston, Texas. The new service provides an efficient method for Intermodal Equipment Providers (IEPs) and Motor Carriers (MCs) to be notified that a DVER has been issued on intermodal equipment. The service is currently offered at no charge to GIER IEP subscribers and UIIA MC participants as a value added service to the GIER and UIIA programs.
When a citation is issued at roadside, IEPs and MCs are notified via e-mail with a PDF copy of the Intermodal Equipment Provider Report (page 2 of the DVER) attached. The service also offers IEPs and MCs access to a DVER web portal for retrieval and storage of the citations.
To accomplish this, an interface connection between the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and IANA has been established in order for FMCSA to transmit copies of the DVER IEP Report electronically to IANA.
IEPs and UIIA Motor Carriers are encouraged to take advantage of this new service. Click here for additional information on the service and instructions on how to register.

Important Notice — GIER Compliance with 5th Marking Option under FMCSA Roadability Regulations
CALVERTON, MD, JANUARY 16, 2011 — It has come to our attention that some state enforcement personnel are issuing citations to Intermodal Equipment Providers (IEPs) for regulatory violations of the equipment marking requirement under Section 390.21 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) even though the IEPs have registered their equipment in the Global Intermodal Equipment Registry (GIER). Registration of intermodal equipment in the GIER database meets the 5th marking option under Section 390.21 for regulatory compliance.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) issued a bulletin on Jan. 14, 2011, to enforcement personnel providing guidelines for use of GIER as the 5th marking option. Click here to download a copy of the CVSA Inspection Bulletin.
Should any IEP that currently has equipment registered in GIER receive a citation for violation of the equipment marking requirement, please forward a copy of the citation to our Information Services Help Desk. Upon receipt we will confirm that the chassis cited was registered in GIER on the date of the citation and notify the proper authorities of the "error". This information should be sent via e-mail to email@example.com.

CALVERTON, MD, January 13, 2011—December 17, 2010 marked the compliance date of the final Roadability regulations (Docket No. FMCSA-2005-23315), that requires that all intermodal equipment must be marked with a US DOT number, as required by Section 390.21 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). The regulation identifies five options that Intermodal Equipment Providers (IEPs) may use to comply with the regulation. IEPs are encouraged to register their intermodal equipment in the GIER database as this meets the fifth option for regulatory compliance under Section 390.21 as it relates to the equipment marking requirement.
