How do the biennial update changes in the URS rule affect motor carriers, HMSP applicants/holders, and intermodal equipment providers?

Very little. Motor carriers, Hazardous Materials Safety Permit applicants/holders and intermodal equipment providers are already required to update their registration information every 24 months according to the schedule under 49 CFR 390.19. However, as of  November 1, 2013 these entities may be subject to new enforcement provisions intended to improve compliance with these updating requirements, including civil penalties and the deactivation of their USDOT Number.
