Trucking companies, brokers, 3PLs and other transportation industry businesses have their own unique regulatory requirements. The DOT Doctor is here to take the guess work, agony and stress out of setting up your new business.
Protect yourself from the New FMCSA rulings. As of Dec 16, 2008...
The final rule issued by the FMCSA establishes that a newly registered trucking or bus company will automatically fail its safety audit if it violates any one of 16 essential federal regulations during the 18-month safety monitoring period. These essential regulations cover controlled substances and alcohol testing, hours-of-service, driver qualifications, vehicle condition, and carrier financial responsibility.
If a company fails its new entrant safety audit, it may result in revocation of a carrier’s registration with the agency, unless the carrier takes necessary corrective action within a specified time period established by FMCSA.
The rule would also require that if during the 18-month safety monitoring period, certain violations are discovered during roadside inspections, the new entrant may be subjected to a new entrant expedited safety audit or in the case of serious safety violations, a more comprehensive compliance review, which can result in fines and penalties. The carrier may also be required to submit a written corrective action plan explaining in detail how the carrier will achieve compliance with the safety rules and improve its safety performance.
The final rule on the New Entrant Safety Assurance Process is available for review on the FMCSA Web site in Rules and Regulations.
