DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AA22 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Unified Registration System 
Abstract: This rule would establish a new Unified Registration System (URS) to replace three legacy systems in support of FMCSA┬┤s safety and commercial oversight responsibilities. It would require all entities subject to FMCSA jurisdiction to comply with a new URS registration and biennial update requirement, disclose the cumulative registration information collected by URS and provides a cross-reference to all regulatory requirements necessary to obtain permanent registration. It implements statutory provisions in the ICC Termination Act and SAFTEA-LU. URS would serve as a clearinghouse and depository of information on, and identification of, brokers, freight forwarders, and others required to register with the Department of Transportation. The agency has determined the total net societal benefits of the rule to be $19.5 million and the total societal costs to be $26.5 million.
