FMCSA Encourages Carriers to Update their Registration
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all entities under its jurisdiction to update their information every two years as part of the new Unified Registration System (URS) regulation. Under URS, you are required to provide this update every two years, even if your company has not changed its information, has ceased interstate operations since the last update, or is no longer in business and you did not notify FMCSA. Failure to complete a Biennial Update may result in deactivation of your USDOT number and civil penalties of up to $1,000 per day, not to exceed $10,000. Updating your information is free. We have included instructions below to help you complete your biennial update.
- Carriers needing to complete the Motor Carrier Identification Report (MCS-150) OR the Combined Identification and Hazardous Materials Safety Permit Application (MCS-150B) may do so online through the FMCSA Registration Web site by clicking here.
- In order to complete the registration online, you'll need your USDOT number, assigned PIN, EIN/SSN, and Company Official information.
- Be sure to print an updated MCS-150 form for your records upon completion of the online registration.
