By Working with a DOT Compliance Group Expert, We’ve Taken the “work” out of Paperwork.

On October 2, 2013, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) — an agency of the United States Department of Transportation — distributed an email message to motor carriers encouraging them to update their registration, including the following: “Failure to complete a Biennial Update may result in deactivation of your USDOT number and civil penalties of up to $1,000 per day, not to exceed $10,000.”

Operating Authority

An operating authority is granted by the FMCSA to allow you to work for hire across state lines. If you see your status as “Not Authorized” this means your operating authority is not active and you are not authorized to operate as for hire in interstate commerce.

USDOT Number Application

Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number.

Hazmat Registration

Carriers and transporters of certain quantities and types of hazardous materials (hazmat), including hazardous wastes, are required to file an annual registration statement with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and to pay a fee (see 49 CFR §§ 107.601 - 107.620).

Hazmat Permit

Carriers transporting certain types and amounts of hazardous materials (HM) are required to hold a Federal Hazardous Materials Safety Permit (HMSP) issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The U.S. DOT requires all motor carriers transporting hazardous materials to obtain a Hazmat Permit by filing form MCS150(B) prior to engaging in hazmat transportation and to renew the permit every two years.
