How many of you have gone through an FAA Inspection with flying colors only to find out that the FAA also inspected your collection site and you ended up with violations? The reason is because 49 CFR Part 40[BS1] states, “You are responsible for all actions of your officials, representatives, and agents (including service agents) in carrying out the requirements of the DOT agency regulations.” (§ 40.11)
We highly recommend you take time to view the DOT Mock Collection Instructional Video. This will give you an inside look on how FAA Inspectors audit your collection sites.
