|DOT Inspection Reports|
If you didn't get a chance to attend the town hall meeting at one of the conferences in 2014, you missed a first-hand account of a surprise DOT facility inspection. What kind of an experience can you expect and what will the DOT investigators be looking for? A NAFED member has shared the form that the DOT uses during a facility inspection. The first form is a blank, so you can walk through your own operation and fill it in just like the DOT investigator would. The second form is a completed form that resulted in a "No Violations" exit report, so you can compare your answers. Don't worry if your answers don't match exactly, as every hydrostatic testing operation is different. Regardless of your facility size, expect the DOT investigator to spend about four hours going through your operation and records. NAFED's Federal Regulations Committee has learned that DOT intends to inspect every RIN facility at least once every five years, so if you haven't seen a DOT investigator in a long time, you should expect to.
