Biennial Updates What are the penalties for failure to submit the biennial updates? Is an entity required to file a biennial update if there is no change to its information? Can I go into my local FMCSA Division office to update my US DOT number? How do you complete the biennial update? Will entities be notified before a biennial update is due? When will the URS’s biennial update compliance requirements take effect? How do the biennial update changes in the URS rule affect motor carriers, HMSP applicants/holders, and intermodal equipment providers?
