The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has strict rules for all companies applying for a Motor Carrier Authority. “New Entrants" will be given a temporary interstate operating authority. New Entrants are required to exhibit knowledge of safety regulations and undergo an on-site safety audit within the first 18 months of operation. This safety audit will include a review of the New Entrant's safety and management policies, a review of the carrier's documents and an interview with the owner of the company.
Martin-Braack Partners will prepare you for your initial audits by properly structuring your safety and management policies and procedures, and preparing you for the interview.
New Entrants must certify that they will comply with all requirements:
A company operating BEFORE implementing a random drug and alcohol testing program will fail the audit. The FMCSA will require a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) to be submitted in order to be reinstated.
If the DOT on-site safety audit requirements seem overwhelming or you are operating without a random drug and alcohol program in place... we can help.
If you have failed your safety audit due to non-compliance with drug and alcohol testing requirements Martin-Braack Partners will prepare your Corrective Action Plan (CAP).
