Mock Terminal Inspection
Our Mock Terminal Inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of your Transportation Safety and Compliance Program. Our proprietary and proven process will subject each element of your compliance program to the regulatory scrutiny of a formal compliance audit. Out team will measure your current program against guidelines employed by the DOT & CHP during an inspection.
Hours of Service - We perform a review of your ELD system to ensure it complies with the requirements of 49 CFR, Parts 385, 386, 390, and 395.
Equipment & Maintenance - Our Equipment Compliance Team (ECT) will perform a hands-on inspection of your equipment using the CVSA standards used in a typical roadside inspection. As part of this process, we will conduct a detailed review of your Maintenance and Preventative Maintenance programs to ensure it complies with both state and federal requirements.
Controlled Substance & Alcohol Testing Program - One of the highest areas of risk in any compliance program is an effective and compliant Drug & Alcohol Program. Smyser & Associates has the expertise to evaluate & measure the compliance of your existing program with Part 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40CFR) and Part 382 of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR).
Driver Qualification - Qualifying a driver and properly maintaining the necessary documents in a driver's DQ file is essential for a sound compliance program. However, your responsibility doesn't end there - our review and assessment program will evaluate each component of a properly prepared DQ file for accuracy and completeness.
