FWD Fee Policies
Note: AASHTO Member Departments, including State and Federal Highway departments, are not subject to the fee structure described below.
Domestic facilities include those within the continental United States. A fee of $1500 will be charged for the first day of an on-site evaluation, and a fee of $750 will be charged for each day or portion of a day thereafter. A “day” is considered any amount of time up to nine (9) hours within the course of one calendar day. If an on-site evaluation extends past 9 hours of one calendar day, the center may be charged for a second day. If a supplemental evaluation is required in order to resolve nonconformities and observations as noted on the evaluation report, the fee structure as described above will be used.
International facilities include any facility outside of the continental United States. In addition to the fees described above, international facilities may be subject to additional charges depending upon the location and any extraordinary travel costs. International facilities interested in AMRL FWD Calibration Center Operator Certification should contact AMRL staff for specific details and a cost estimate for services.
Any facility that cancels or reschedules an on-site evaluation within two weeks of the scheduled visit date may be subject to a cancellation fee of $500 to offset costs associated with administrative processing and cancellation of travel plans.
The facility will receive an invoice for services rendered, as specified above, within thirty (30) days of the on-site evaluation. Certificates will not be issued until all invoices have been paid in full. Certificates will be issued within fifteen (15) days of receipt of payment.
