Transportation of Household Goods; Consumer Protection Regulations
Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); request for comments.
The FHWA is proposing to amend the regulations governing the transportation of household goods. These regulations protect consumers who ship household goods by motor vehicle. This action is necessary to implement the ICC Termination Act of 1995 (ICCTA) and to update the regulations. This proposal would make the regulations easier to read and understand, require household goods carriers to file an annual arbitration report in place of the outdated annual performance report, address hostage freight problems, modify a consumer protection publication, and make conforming and technical amendments.
