UCR Registration for 2018 Delayed Again

The Board of Directors of the Unified Carrier Registration program again delayed opening of UCR registration for the 2018 calendar year. The Board had earlier moved the opening of registration back from October 1, the usual start date. The repeated delays are due to delays in action by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which is responsible under federal law for setting the UCR fees.

This year, it is proposed that the UCR fees fall by somewhat more than nine percent. FMCSA has not stated definitely when its rulemaking will take effect and registration can be opened. The Board will be requesting the UCR states NOT to begin enforcing UCR requirements until 90 days following the date on which UCR registration for 2018 finally opens.
