Those who must file the UCR, ... FYI!
The Unified Carrier Registration Board of Directors has announced that the start of the 2018 registration period will be postponed until further notice. They’re still awaiting completion of the rulemaking process for 2018 fees by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
The UCR board is recommending that the enforcement period for 2018 compliance not begin until 90 days after the final rulemaking is published. That decision could be up to the individual participating states, but we anticipate they’ll follow the UCR board recommendation.
The board’s announcement noted that, “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.”
