CVSA to Start Enforcement of UCR Compliance February 1, 2013

Posted by:

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has announced plans to begin enforcement February 1, 2013, against carriers that have not complied with the Unified Carrier Registration program.   CVSA is composed of local, state and federal motor carrier and shipper representatives who direct the program that was created to allow truckers to pay UCR registration fees to one state.

Who is Subject to the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR)?

All motor carriers (for-hire, private and exempt), as well as brokers, freight-forwarder and leasing companies operating in interstate and international commerce are subject to UCR agreement.  Because no credential shows UCR compliance, CVSA advised inspectors to verify interstate operations by checking log entries, toll receipts, shipping papers or bills of lading.  Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has created a violation code for failure to pay the UCR fee. That summons or citation is governed by state or enforcement department regulations.
