US watchdog will review FAA decision to unground Boeing 737 MAX

The US Transportation Department's inspector general said on Tuesday THAT he will audit the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) decision in November to unground the Boeing 737 MAX and other agency decisions.
The 737 MAX was grounded in March 2019 after two fatal crashes in five months killed 346 people. The new audit will examine the FAA’s actions following the two accidents, including the FAA’s risk assessments, the 2019 grounding of the aircraft, and "its subsequent recertification in November 2020," the inspector general's office said. Boeing and the FAA did not immediately comment.
