Who Must File
FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) requires ALL motor carriers and brokers to update their information. You are required to provide this update every two years even if your company has not changed its information, has ceased interstate operations since the last update, or is no longer in business and you did not notify FMCSA.
When To File
First, you must file this update every two years based on the following schedule:
Second, any time a carrier or broker changes its name or address, or other details in their record, they should update their US DOT and operating authority record with FMCSA in a timely manner.
Third, any time your authority becomes inactive or is revoked, you will need to file this update.
PLEASE NOTE: Failure to complete a Biennial Update will result in deactivation of your USDOT # and may result in civil penalties of up to $1,000 per day, not to exceed $10,000.
