FMCSA Portal Updates — Action Required

FMCSA Portal Users –

If you have or use an FMCSA Portal account, you must act now to maintain access.

How you log on to the FMCSA Portal is changing.  FMCSA is making access more secure by implementing multifactor authentication. As of January 1st, User ID and Passwords will no longer be used to access the FMCSA Portal.

You will access the FMCSA Portal through a account instead of using your current FMCSA Portal username and password.

(U.S. Department of Transportation users should refer to the internal email notifications for specific instructions on creating accounts and logging in via government issues PIV cards.)

What actions do you need to take now?

To ensure you have continued access to the FMCSA Portal, you must set up a account. Please follow the attached step-by-step directions, which can also be found on the FMCSA website, to establish your account.

Don’t delay – set up your account now for immediate access to the FMCSA Portal that is easier and more secure. Once you have created your account, instead of entering a User ID and Password, simply click the “Sign In With” link and follow the attached instructions to log in.

Have questions or need help setting up your account?

What is Multifactor Authentication?

Multifactor Authentication is a method to verify your identity requiring two or more pieces of evidence (factors). These factors can be something you know (like a password), something you have (like an access card) or something you are (like facial recognition or fingerprint).

Why is FMCSA implementing Multifactor Authentication?

The Federal Cybersecurity plan under White House Executive Order 14028, Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, and Office of Budget Memorandum M-22-09, Moving the U.S. Government Toward Zero Trust Cybersecurity Principles (Federal Zero Trust Strategy) requires all Federal agencies to adopt secure MFA to enhance information security by Dec. 31, 2023.
