Homework Answer on Federal Regulation Agency
The three enforcement actions commonly used by the FAA are the administrative action, certificate action, and criminal action known as legal action.
Administrative action is employed when the nature of the case is minor, and can be settled by the management while legal action entails resolution of the case in courts of law.
The system utilized is known as the Enforcement Decision Tool (EDT).
The federal regulation agency, which is responsible for the determination of accident occurrences, is called National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB). The board functions independently and is responsible for conducting investigations to all civil aviation accidents in the United States.
The two orders, which govern the enforcement actions, are the internal administrative orders and the statutes found in the FAA act.
