The FMCSA has the authority to grant approval for motor carriers to begin operations and also can shut them down if they pose an imminent hazard or have a pattern of serious violations of safety rules. The FMCSA intermittently performs comprehensive compliance reviews that involve visiting the headquarters of a motor carrier to examine adherence to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and Federal Hazardous Material Regulations. Motor carriers often receive advance notice of a compliance review, but this is not always the case.
