UCR 2018 filing postponed until further notice

2018 fees not yet ready, enforcement may be delayed

Posted October 27, 2017

The Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Board met on October 26, 2017, to discuss the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) UCR fees reduction proposal and the 2018 filing start date.

In a previous meeting, the Board agreed to delay the 2018 filing start date until November 1 pending adoption of the 2018 fees; however, the FMCSA has not yet adopted a final rule adopting the 2018 fees. The November 1 filing date is no longer feasible and therefore the 2018 filing is now postponed until further notice.

During the meeting, the Board also recommended that states delay enforcement until 90 days after the 2018 filing starts.
