The Unified Carrier Registration is a federal mandate per Code of Federal Regulations Title 49 Section 367. An annual payment for the UCR is required for all companies with an active U.S. DOT number that are engaged in interstate commerce and/or transporting goods that originate or have a destination outside of the company base state (e.g. containers/intermodal).
The 2022 UCR Registration, per Code of Federal Regulations CFR 367, must be finalized by the end of the year preceeding the UCR Registration filing period. As such, the final payment and application must be submitted and processed by the end of the year 2021 for the 2022 UCR period. Because of the large number of motor carriers that must file this registration the filing period spans from October through December 2021 to allow sufficient time for processing of applications and payments. If you are new to the transportation industry you may have observed that during the past 2 years the deadline for the UCR Registration was around the April-July time frame. This was a unique instance due to settlement of UCR filing fees by the UCR board as a result of which the filing periods have been pushed back.
