The start of the 2019 UCR registration period is delayed until further notice while the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) completes its rulemaking process on fee levels for 2019.
The proposed fees for 2019 currently under review are based on a recommendation that was submitted by UCR to the FMCSA to reduce fees for carriers at all levels by 4.5% in 2019. This follows a 9.1% reduction this year.
Until further notice, carriers are advised to not pay any carrier fees for the 2019 registration year. If fees are erroneously paid to UCR prior to the final rulemaking, that paid fee will be returned to the entity in its entirety. We expect to receive updated information regarding the registration period by the end of the year.
