Jerry Johnson is the site manager at a Department of Transportation (DOT) customer service office, where nine other employees also work. Mary Marshall, a former employee at that particular office of the DOT has reported to our office, the OIG of the DOT, that Jerry Johnson has been devoting his attention to his own personal things, such as engaging in “church work” and “political work” while on government time from the DOT.
The Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988, a law that prohibits the import of a daily driver vehicle that is less than 25 years old. Has become an ongoing issue in today’s driving society. Specifically, the law states an imported car less than the manufacturing date of 25 years need to pass certain safety emissions and tests to be brought to U.S.A. “The vehicle must be capable of being brought into compliance with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards.” (102 STAT. 2819). From 1988 to, the present consumers are arguing that this pointless law is taking away their freedom to buy and import vehicles at their own discretion. This could lead the consumers into black market schemes making it a very risky approach towards imported vehicles sales and would hurt the economy in the same process. The Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988 should be removed because of the freedom it strips away from the automotive consumer.
We are writing in reference to the ELD mandate and the negative effect it will have on our companies, other small trucking companies nationwide, will create a hazardous and unsafe environment for the public. Our Trucking companies were thriving because of our hard work and dedication until the ELD Mandate.
Yesterday around 5pm after finishing work and heading back to the hotel, Todd was following Ozzie and CK when for reasons yet to be determined Todd’s van failed to slow down striking the Tundra with Ozzie and CK in it from behind. Both vehicles are at the plant and all involved are being checked and screened. So far CK and Ozzie are diagnosed with muscle strain, and Todd reports no injury. So far the investigation has revealed that Todd’s DOT card expired 7/19 and was set up yesterday evening post accident to renew it today, and according to the CWS Fleet Safety Manual should have not been operating a company vehicle. I currently have IT gathering his cell use during the period from 4-5pm yesterday to eliminate possible use as a distraction.
The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) provides numerous services related to vehicle registration and licensing. The state agency is responsible for titling, licensing, and inspecting vehicles, such as cars, trucks, and motorcycles (Dresang, 2012). The DMV vehicle inspection center examines the motorist’s headlights, taillights, turn signals, horn, windshield wipers, emergency flashers, emissions, and brakes prior to the driver proceeding to the relicensing stage (Dresang, 2012). Therefore, the division’s widget is vehicle inspections.
Complying with Regulators is a priority for Cummins. This could mean meeting environmental regulations to financial regulations. By doing so, the company stays in good standing with the regulators allowing them to work on those that are not.
The Personnel Accountability System (PAS) is used to keep track and identify who is on that particular truck or engine during that operation. For example: once we get off the truck during a structural fire the red, and white passports are removed and put in their respective area. The white either goes to who is in charge of the IDLH and if that hasn’t been setup before entry it stays with the crew chief. The red will stay on the truck to be picked up by the IC or the safety officer. It is the crew chief’s responsibility to make sure the entire pass tags are on that passport, but however just like everything that pertains to safety it is all of our responsibility to make sure we put our pas tags on the passports in the cab during morning checkout.
During my tenure at Samuel Shapiro and Company, Inc., I prepared and finalized the US Customs Power of Attorney which is required under US Customs regulation. I also processed continuous Customs bonds and single entry bonds. When needed, I would submit bond riders with US Customs. Bond riders are issued to change the name or address of the importer. The surety bonds were used to make sure all importers adhere to the US Customs Border & Protection regulations. On a daily basis, I worked directly with import and export departments to ensure compliance with US and other country regulations. Often, I worked with USDA-APHIS and FDA for documentation needed for importing into the USA. In addition, our company was Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certified therefore US Customs conducted annual audits at our headquarters location to verify that we were complying with the rules in regards to our
In annual circulars, FAA rules and regulations can change based on reactive circumstances. For example, in 2018 regulations imposed included, fuel tank fire protection measures, standards for standards for secure access to the cockpit, and operations without weather reporting, and each American airline has one year to comply (“Recently Published Rulemaking Documents,” 2018). If not in compliance, fines, lawsuits, and bad reputation can persist. Another government entity imposing regulations to abide by is the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with respect to Internet privacy, advertising, and mergers and acquisitions of Airlines (Protecting Consumer Privacy,
By not addressing these problems earlier when these violations were identified, incidents like the Torrance explosion could perhaps be resolved before they become troublesome. The failure to do so has cost the company greatly in monetary damages as they pay out fines to the federal
Oil and gas/Energy companies continue to deal with evolving regulatory challenges, which has required continuous monitoring of risk, assessments, allocation of resources and control adaptation. As a result, we are seeking new and creative ways to improve our effectiveness and efficiency of our compliance programs in order to stay in line with the oversight and enforcement activities of regulatory authorities. We need to evaluate our goals, sharpen the approach to compliance, and gain insight into how our competitors are implementing and designing new compliance programs.
Laws and regulations have always played a dominant role in the automobile industry. Automobile manufacturers must follow government regulations concerning safety, fuel consumption and pollution control. Automobiles must pass a series of tests in order to assure the safety of the vehicle. Manufacturers have also begun to use a system in which safety rating stickers are issued on new vehicles in order to display the ratings awarded by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). Fuel economy has also play a role politically as NHTSA decided to increase their fuel economy regulations. In 2007 they announced new standards that will require vehicles
