Registration of For-Hire Motor Carriers, Property Brokers, and Freight Forwarders
Notice of proposed rulemaking; request for comments.
The FHWA proposes to adopt interim rules governing registration of for-hire motor property and passenger carriers, property brokers, and freight forwarders. The interim rules are required by 49 U.S.C. 13901-13905, provisions of the Interstate Commerce Commission Termination Act of 1995 (ICCTA), Pub. L. 104-88, 109 Stat. 803, that mandate a registration system to be administered by the Secretary of Transportation to replace the former Interstate Commerce Commission's licensing system for motor carriers, property brokers, and freight forwarders. It is anticipated that these interim rules would be used until the FHWA completes the rulemaking required by 49 U.S.C.13908 which is currently underway.
