Start Supplemental Information
On August 12, 2014, the FAA published an immediate final rule entitled “Orders of Compliance, Cease and Desist Orders, Orders of Denial, and Other Orders” (79 FR 46964). That rulemaking provides the opportunity for an informal conference with an FAA attorney before an order is issued under 14 CFR 13.20, the FAA's regulation covering orders other than certificate action and civil penalty orders. The change is necessary to provide additional fairness and process to those persons who are subject to such an order, and is consistent with the process available in other enforcement actions. These conferences may result in either a resolution of the matter or a narrowing of the issues, thereby conserving resources for respondents and the FAA.
Discussion of Comments
The FAA received one comment on the immediate final rule. The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) welcomed the FAA's amendment to § 13.20. The NBAA recognized this change provides additional fairness to those subject to an order. The NBAA acknowledged this rule as a positive change for the industry.
After consideration of the comments submitted in response to the immediate final rule, the FAA has determined that no revisions to the rule are warranted based on the comments received.
