A. The UCR Agreement was established by federal law in the UCR Act and is part of the federal highway re-authorization bill known as the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act, A Legacy for Users (“SAFETEA-LU”), Public Law 109-59, enacted August 10, 2005.
Motor Carriers, Motor Private Carriers, Freight Forwarders, Brokers, and Leasing Companies involved in passenger and property operations in interstate commerce are now regulated by the UCR Program. Development of the program was completed in 2007 when the UCR Agreement replaced the Single State Registration System. Fees are due annually and are based on the number of commercial motor vehicles operated for the 12-month period ending June 30 of the year immediately prior to the year for which the UCR registration is made.
