Start of 2020 UCR Registration Period Remains Delayed

Board to Review Enforcement Delay at Jan. 28 Meeting

(January 2, 2020) – As the new year begins, the start of the registration period for the 2020 Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) program remains delayed until further notice.  The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) confirmed this week that the process to establish a final rulemaking for 2020 is still underway within the agency.

The UCR Board of Directors (Board) recommends that states and law enforcement delay enforcement for three months starting from the effective date of the 2020 fees as required in the UCR Agreement.  The Board will review the current situation at its next meeting on January 28 and may take action to recommend a slightly longer enforcement delay depending on when the three-month grace period expires.  Once fees for the 2020 Registration Year are effective, we will, of course, post another message immediately.
