DOT Compliance Review Audits for Propane Companies

DOT Compliance Reviews can be conducted at any time! It is crucial that your company is prepared BEFORE you are notified that the DOT will be performing a Compliance Review at your company. You could save thousands of dollars in possible fines by correcting problems now, instead of waiting until an actual DOT Compliance Review occurs.


What Is a DOT Compliance Review?

A Compliance Review is an on-site and/or targeted off-site examination of a motor carrier’s operation by a State or Federal safety investigator to determine a motor carrier’s safety fitness. The Compliance Review focuses on a carrier’s management controls, operational performance, accident history, and compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and Hazardous Materials Regulations, as applicable.
