DOT Rule 49 CFR Part 40 Section 40.73 Q&A

§40.73; §40.193                                                      09/01


What is the preferred method for the collector to get the MRO copy of the CCF to the MRO?


• The promptness of reporting suffers when the mail is used to convey the MRO copy from the collection site.

• Even though we permit other means (e.g., overnight courier service) of transmitting MRO copies from the collection site to the MRO, collectors should fax the MRO copies when possible.

• If the faxed copy is not legible, the MRO must request another faxed copy or a hard copy.
