Federal Regulations

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) are national standards that regulate the design, construction, performance, and durability requirements for motor vehicles and regulated safety-related components, systems, and design features.
Federal Regulations

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is responsible for the development, creation, promulgation, and enforcement of the FMVSS. These regulations are divided into three categories: crash avoidance (100-series), crashworthiness (200-series), and post-crash survivability (300-series).

In the case of an accident,Armstrong Forensic Engineers are trained and certified to inspect commercial motor vehicles, non-commercial vehicles, and heavy equipment in accordance with applicable Federal Regulations. We also inspect regulatory paper work such as commercial vehicle log books, personnel files, maintenance records, and so on. The data gathered is then utilized to determine what effect it may have had on a collision or incident.
