Border Liaison Unit / Arizona-Sonora Border Relations
International Border Inspection Qualification
The purpose of this program is to have the International Border crossing drivers inspect their trucks and tractors so that when they arrive at the ports they will have inspected their Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) and present the Inspector a copy of their findings thus streamlining the inspection process and improving the safety of all commercial motor vehicles crossing the International Ports in route to our highway system.
This will allow our Inspectors to focus on Drivers who are not in the program and give us a greater ability to enhance highway safety. The Border Liaison Unit will be required to provide the training to the Drivers in accordance with current Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and will issue the certification document. The following steps will be taken in this process.
The Border Liaison Unit will provide the following IBIC Training:
Commercial Vehicle Inspection Training and Certification.
Commercial Vehicle Inspection Verification process.
Provisions for Noncompliance and Penalties.
Driver Competition to Enhance Knowledge and Safety.
Use of timely Electronic means of Communication.
