Motor Carrier Identification Report

Interim final rule.

The FMCSA amends the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to revise the requirements for filing the Motor Carrier Identification Report (MCS-150). A motor carrier is currently required to file this report before it begins to operate. As a result of this Interim final rule (IFR), the FMCSA will require each motor carrier to file an update of the report every 24 months. A motor carrier that submits similar information to a State as part of its annual vehicle registration requirement under the Performance and Registration Information Systems Management (PRISM) program will be in compliance if it files it with the appropriate State commercial motor vehicle (CMV) registration office. Section 217 of the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 requires periodic updating, not more often than once every two years, of the motor carrier identification report filed by each motor carrier operating in interstate or foreign commerce.
