As a carrier, passing your New Entrant Audit is a critical step in demonstrating regulatory compliance and ensuring good standing with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). However, failure to pass this audit can have significant consequences, requiring corrective actions to be taken, and potentially leading to a revocation of operating authority.
One of the most important steps that carriers can take to get back on track if they fail their New Entrant Audit is to complete a Compliance Assistance Program (CAP). A CAP is essentially a customized program designed to help carriers identify and correct any compliance deficiencies that were identified during their audit.
The purpose of a CAP is to help carriers improve their safety management systems, better understand the FMCSA regulations, and adopt best practices for achieving and maintaining regulatory compliance. Once a carrier has completed their CAP, they will be able to demonstrate that they are operating in compliance with FMCSA regulations and will be in good standing with the agency.
The FMCSA takes compliance very seriously, and every carrier is expected to maintain a high level of safety and regulatory compliance at all times.
