DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AA22 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Unified Registration System 
Abstract: This rule would establish a new Unified Registration System (URS) to replace four 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 provide 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, motor carriers, brokers, freight forwarders, and others required to register with the Department of Transportation.
