What type of review is an intermodal equipment provider (IEP) subject to under 49 CFR part 385, to determine its safety and regulatory compliance?

The final rule (73 FR 76794) added a new type of safety assessment, the roadability review. A roadability review is an on-site examination of an intermodal equipment provider’s (IEP)  inspection, repair, and maintenance operation and records to determine compliance with applicable Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (i.e., 49 CFR parts 390, 393, and 396). The Agency conducts roadability reviews to evaluate the safety and regulatory compliance status of IEPs.
