The Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) has released an update to its Uniform Inspection and Communication Standards (UICS) for brake systems. The condition “Corrosion inhibitors depleted” and the resultant recommendation were added to the Brake Fluid Component. This update is effective immediately and comes recommended by the AMRA/MAP Technical Committee as a result of the ongoing AMRA Maintenance Service Program effort.

As part of the ongoing endeavor to update and re-publish the MAP UICS biannually, the MAP Board has determined that interim updates, where appropriate, should be released as developed. This change falls into that category.

Revised copies of the complete Brake System standard will soon be available in electronic format from AMRA/MAP. Contact Tim Tierney at [email protected] or (301) 634-4952 with your request.
