trucking66The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is about to publish a rule that would set higher standards for companies wanting to do business in trucking. This new rule would also help catch “chameleon carriers” who dodge enforcement by using different identities.

The FMCSA sent the final rule for a Unified Registration System to the White House Office of Management and Budget for review on February 18th.

For years, FMCSA has been working to implement rules that would reform the way it keeps track of the motor carriers, brokers and freight forwarders that the agency regulates. The new system, called a Unified Registration System, will replace several existing identification systems.

URS would serve as a clearinghouse and depository of information on motor carriers, brokers and freight forwarders and others required to register with the U.S. DOT.

It is believed that the rule will be published in the Federal Register the end of May.
