*** 2018 UCR Registration Delay ***
Dear Motor Carrier, Broker, Leasing Company or Freight Forwarder:
While we believe a new rule setting final fees is imminent, the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Board of Directors is delaying until further notice the start of the 2018 registration period while the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) completes the rulemaking process for 2018 fees.
Due to this unanticipated further delay, UCR is recommending to all states that the enforcement period for 2018 compliance not begin until 90 days after the final rulemaking is published.
The fee levels being proposed are based on a recommendation submitted by UCR to the FMCSA in March 2017 to reduce fees for carriers at all levels by 9% in 2018.
Until further notice, please do not submit any carrier fees or forms for the 2018 registration year (online or paper forms). If received prior to the final rulemaking, your fees and forms will be returned.
Carriers should expect a further notice soon. We will continue to keep you updated as we become aware of relevant fee and registration information.
Yours in Safety,
Motor Carrier Compliance & Safety Company
