URS – Unified Registration System
The URS (Unified Registration System) is a new online registration system. Its purpose is to make the process of registration easier and more effective. It stores information on brokers, motor carriers, freight forwarders, EIPs, applicants and holders of hazardous materials safety permit and all other entities regulated by the agency. Legally, it is mandatory for all these entities to comply with the URS. Also, all the forms that are used for registration and updates will be made into a single “smart form”. The system is not complete yet, but when it is, it will handle all applications and updates to existing files.
What does this mean for you?
If you are a new applicant, you will be registered through the URS. If you already have a USDOT number or MC or FF number, your registration matters will be using the existing forms. The agency plans to add data on all existing entities as well, but as for now, the system is only available for registration of new applicants.
Who must comply with the URS rule?
– private and for-hire motor carriers
– freight forwarders
– HMSP applicants and holders
– cargo tank manufacturing and repair facilities
For new applicants: December 12, 2015.
Existing entities: belong January 14, 2017, because more time is required for developing and updating the new system and verifying its reliability.
After the new system is fully implemented, all the entities, new and existing, will be required to use the new online system.
