Equipment Status Clearinghouse Services

The Equipment Status Clearinghouse encompasses three applications developed by IANA to provide information related to the condition of intermodal equipment at specific points in the logistics cycle. The three applications are as follows:

  • Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting Service(DVIR)—Driver vehicle inspection reporting is mandated, effective June 30, 2010, as defined in Sections 396.11-12, Part 390 of the final "Roadability" regulations issued under Docket No. FMCSA-2005-23315. In support, IANA has developed electronic Driver Vehicle Inspection Report processing capabilities.

    DVIR services include:

    • DVIR Processing—Upon receipt of specific gate and roadability compliance information, IANA creates a DVIR and delivers it to the appropriate Intermodal Equipment Provider (IEP).
    • DVIR Web Services—A computer-to-computer interface that enables communication with IANA databases in order to create an electronic DVIR. This service provides the recipient with critical information components necessary to create a DVIR including identification of the IEP and provision of a driver's electronic signature.

    IANA's DVIR services link the Global Intermodal Equipment Registry, IANA's Intermodal Driver Database (IDD) and Uniform Intermodal Interchange and Facilities Access Agreement (UIIA) database to provide efficient access to the data needed for electronic DVIR reporting.

    For more information on this service, please go to www.dvir.intermodal.org.

  • The Driver Vehicle Examination Report Service (DVER) 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. DVER 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 email 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.

  • Bad Order Equipment Status Service—Provides a clearinghouse for equipment status information (bad order, gate hold, release) that allows for standardization of data communication formats, simplification of operating system interconnectivity and streamlining of trading partner information for all industry participants as it relates to bad order equipment. BOES offers the following features:
    • Notifies all parties (FO, IEP, MRV) of equipment damage as identified by DVER, DVIR, On-Terminal Damage Event, or IEP notification.
    • Routes IEP directions to bad order equipment.
    • Notifies all parties of repair/release
    • Digitizes DVER information (DVER EDI capability)
    • Provides for ISO/AAR damage code conversion

IANA is currently in the beta testing stages with prospective users of the BOES application and hopes to launch the new application into production by third quarter 2015. For more information on the BOES application or if your company is interested in being a beta tester, please contact Stacie Fagan at 301-982-3400 ext. 369.
