Federal Register Description/Summary
Section 4142 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), which was enacted into law August 10, 2005, authorizes the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) to register brokers and freight forwarders of nonhousehold goods (otherwise known as general commodities brokers and freight forwarders) if the Secretary finds that such registration is needed for the protection of shippers. FMCSA, which has been delegated authority to exercise the Secretary’s functions and activities regarding broker and freight forwarder registration, is making a finding that registration of brokers and freight forwarders of non-household goods is needed for the protection of shippers. Accordingly, the Agency will continue to register all general commodities brokers and freight forwarders subject to its jurisdiction.
