MTAC would like to remind members that the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Agreement National Registration System is now accepting registrations for the 2022 registration year.
If you operate a truck or bus in interstate or international commerce, or if you make the arrangements for the transportation of cargo and goods, the registration requirements of the UCR agreement applies to your business.
The UCR agreement requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business with their home state and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. Companies operating solely as brokers, freight forwarders or leasing companies are also required to register and pay a fee of $69. Companies providing both motor carrier services as well as broker, freight forwarder or leasing services are required to pay the fee level set at the motor carrier level. Motor private carriers of passengers only are not required to register and pay fees under the UCR. The revenues generated will be used for enforcement of motor carrier safety programs.
