Registration of For-Hire Motor Carriers, Property Brokers, and Freight Forwarders; Withdrawal
Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); withdrawal.
The FMCSA withdraws the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) relating to proposed interim rules on the registration of for-hire motor property and passenger carriers, property brokers, and freight forwarders published in the Federal Register at 63 FR 7362 on February 13, 1998. This NPRM will be superseded by three rulemaking proceedings now in development that will impact the registration process: registration rules for new entrants as required by the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 (MCSIA); registration rules for Mexican motor carriers operating in the United States under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); and rules implementing a unified carrier registration system as required by the Interstate Commerce Commission Termination Act of 1995 (ICCTA). Maintaining an open docket on the proposed interim registration rules would be inconsistent with changes that FMCSA will propose in these proceedings.
