Tip of the Week - Returning Traffic Documents and Airline Identification Plates

Please remember that you are no longer required to return unused traffic documents and airline identification plates to ARC. Listing stock control number ranges is a thing of the past!

We have simplified the process. Submit Form 116, with three sections completed:

  • Part 1 - Agency Information
  • Part 2 - Methods for Destruction (read and follow the instructions)
  • Part 3 - Certification (sign and date)

Fax the completed form to ARC at 703.341.1228.

You may find Form 116 - Affidavit of Traffic Document and/or Airline Identification Plate Destruction here.
