Why are there two effective dates for the Unified Registration System (URS) rule?

FMCSA set November 1, 2013 as the compliance date for the biennial update requirements because motor carriers are already required to update their registration information biennially under 49 CFR 390.19 and the information is very valuable to the Agency in carrying out its safety mission.

The October 23, 2015 effective date to comply with the remaining URS requirements is to provide sufficient time for the Agency to launch the new URS website.
