The FMCSA launched a phased rollout of the Unified Registration System (URS). All new registration applicants are currently using the new URS Application. Existing registrants (entities that have a USDOT number and/or operating authority) can update their information using all of the existing processes – online and paper forms – until September 30, 2016. After this date, existing registrants will use the new URS as well.
Any time a carrier or other regulated entity changes its name or address, or other details in their record, they should update their USDOT and operating authority record with the FMCSA in a timely manner. In addition, the FMCSA requires all entities under its jurisdiction to update their information every two years.
Per the FMCSA, failure to complete a Biennial Update will result in deactivation of your USDOT number and may result in civil penalties of up to $1,000 per day, not to exceed $10,000.
