§ 13.35 

(1) If the person charged with a viola-

tion fails to respond to the notice of 
violation within 30 days after receipt of 
that notice; or 

(2) If the parties participated in any 

informal procedures under paragraph 
(b)(2) of this section and the parties 
have not agreed to compromise the ac-
tion or the agency attorney has not 
agreed to withdraw the notice of viola-
tion. 

(d)  Order assessing civil penalty. An 

order assessing civil penalty may be 
issued after notice and opportunity for 
a hearing. A person charged with a vio-
lation may be subject to an order as-
sessing civil penalty in the following 
circumstances: 

(1) An order assessing civil penalty 

may be issued if a person charged with 
a violation submits, or agrees to sub-
mit, the amount of civil penalty pro-
posed in the notice of violation. 

(2) An order assessing civil penalty 

may be issued if a person charged with 
a violation submits, or agrees to sub-
mit, an agreed-upon amount of civil 
penalty that is not reflected in either 
the notice of violation or the final no-
tice and order. 

(3) The final notice and order be-

comes (and contains a statement so in-
dicating) an order assessing a civil pen-
alty when the person charged with a 
violation submits the amount of the 
proposed civil penalty that is reflected 
in the final notice and order. 

(4) The final notice and order be-

comes (and contains a statement so in-
dicating) an order assessing a civil pen-
alty 16 days after receipt of the final 
notice and order, unless  not later than 
15 days after receipt of the final notice 
and order, the person charged with a 
violation does one of the following— 

(i) Submits an agreed-upon amount 

of civil penalty that is not reflected in 
the final notice and order, in which 
case an order assessing civil penalty or 
a compromise order shall be issued in 
that amount; or 

(ii) Requests a hearing in which case 

a complaint shall be filed with the 
hearing docket clerk. 

(5) Unless an appeal is filed with the 

FAA decisionmaker in a timely man-
ner, an initial decision or order of an 
administrative law judge shall be con-
sidered an order assessing civil penalty 

if an administrative law judge finds 
that an alleged violation occurred and 
determines that a civil penalty, in an 
amount found to be appropriate by the 
administrative law judge, is warranted. 

(6) Unless a petition for review is 

filed with a U.S. Court of Appeals in a 
timely manner, a final decision and 
order of the Administrator shall be 
considered an order assessing civil pen-
alty if the FAA decisionmaker finds 
that an alleged violation occurred and 
a civil penalty is warranted.
