The FAA today published a Final Rule containing technical amendments to its rules of practice in civil penalty actions. According to the FAA, the changes are “necessary to update the regulations and to reflect statutory changes and “[t]he intended effect of these changes is to ensure that regulated parties have current and correct procedural information.”
The rules of practice are contained in 14 CFR Part 13. Many of the amendments relate to the procedures for obtaining judicial review of a final decision or order in a civil penalty action. Additional amendments provide an updated internet address (“URL”) for the FAA’s civil penalty website located here and a current address at which documents must be filed in civil penalty actions.
The amendments are effective today. If you would like further information regarding the final rule and the amendments contained therein, you may contact Vicki Sherman Leemon, Office of the Chief Counsel, Adjudication Branch, AGC-439, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone 202/385-8227.
