Created by the Unified Carrier Registration Act of 2005 (UCR Act - 49 United States Code (USC) section 14504a), it replaces the former system for registering and collecting fees from the operators of vehicles engaged in interstate travel – the Single State Registration System (SSRS).

What is the law that Governs, the Unified Carrier Registration Agreement?

The Unified Carrier Registration Agreement (UCRA) is established by Federal Law, in the Unified Carrier Registration Act of 2005, which is the part of the Federal Highway Reauthorization Bill (public law 109-59, enacted August 10, 2005). In particular, the structure of UCRA is set forth in SAFETEA-LU section 405, which enacts a new section of the Federal Code 49 U.S.C. Section 14504a.

What entities are subject to the UCRA fees?

Only regulated for-hire motor carriers have been covered by the Single State Registration System. UCRA on the other hand, requires all motor carriers required to register with the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), including private for-hire, exempt carriers, as well as brokers, freight forwarders and leasing companies to pay fees.

What entities are not subject to the UCRA fees?

Purely intrastate motor carriers are not subject to UCRA fees per se, unless a state that participates in the UCRA, elects to extend the requirements of the UCRA to its intrastate carrier population, and intrastate carriers of hazardous materials, all carriers that have a US DOT number are under the UCRA.

Are carriers based in Canada and Mexico subject to the UCRA?

Yes, if carriers, freight forwarders, leasing companies and brokers based in Canada or Mexico operate in the Interstate or International Commerce in the United States, they are subject to the Unified Carrier Registration Agreement.
