The FAA today published a Final Rule containing revisions to the civil penalty inflation adjustment rule and tables regarding certain civil monetary penalties authorized for violations of statutes and regulations enforced by the FAA. The final rule makes a variety of changes to 14 CFR part 13, subpart H, which describes the civil penalty inflation adjustment process and the civil penalties that apply to various violations. The final rule is intended to harmonize previous statutory changes impacting civil penalties and it includes three tables that reflect civil penalties for specific regulatory violations including those penalties that are receiving an inflation adjustment.
The amendments contained in the final rule become effective June 15, 2006.
