URS Implementation Delayed Until January
The US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has delayed implementation of its Unified Registration Systems for three months from September to January 14, 2017, with a new full compliance date of April 14, 2017.
Updates to the system are intended to streamline the existing registration system to provide one online form for carriers and other entities required to register with FMCSA. New registrants have been using the online form since December 12, 2015; however carriers with existing records weren’t expected to use the new online form to update their registration until September 2016.
According to the FMCSA, the delay in launching the new system is related to the complexity of converting the existing system to a cloud-based version and the huge number of records to be transferred.
- Those with USDOT, MC, or FF numbers, or combinations, will continue to use existing FMCSA forms and processes for updates, applications for additional registration authorities, administrative filings, and other registration related transactions, until January 14, 2017.
- Private hazardous materials and exempt for-hire carriers now have until April 14, 2017 to have proof of financial responsibility in place.
- Existing private and exempt carriers also have until that date to process agents (BOC-3 filings) as well.
