The safety of the nations flying public depends, in large part, on the aviation industry's compliance with safety regulations and the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) enforcement of those regulations when violations occur. FAA has a variety of enforcement mechanisms that it may use to respond to violations including administrative actions (such as issuing a warning notice or a letter of correction that includes the corrective actions the violator must take) and legal sanctions (such as levying a fine or suspending or revoking a pilot or other FAA-issued certificate). FAA plans to revise how it uses these enforcement tools over the next several years to target the type of enforcement actions so that they will be based on an assessment of the intent of the violator and the risks to safety.

The modernized EIS system would use a web interface for all of the above components, and also support the Paperwork Reduction and E-Government Act priorities. EIS modernization is in the early planning stages.
