If you are a new motor carrier operating in the United States, you must file out and maintain a valid BoC-3 form (also know as the Unified Carrier Registration Form). The filing must be completed by all for-hire motor carriers, brokers, freight forwarders, and leasing companies. The BoC-3 form must be renewed every calendar year.
The filing of a BOC-3 form is required for new motor carriers, freight forwarders, and brokers to register with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Specifically, carriers who wish to obtain an active operating authority to transport property or passengers in interstate commerce are required to submit a completed form. The form is also required if there are changes to the current operating authority, such as an address change or the addition of a new owner.
The BOC-3 Form is mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). It is an Motor Carrier (MC) and Interstate Operating Authority (FF) filing that you must complete in order to get your MC/FF number. All operating motor carriers, brokers, freight forwarders, less-than-truckload, motor passenger carriers, passenger carriers, and hazardous materials motor carriers are required to file a BOC-3 Form.
You can begin by obtaining a USDOT number, which can be done online. Once you have obtained your USDOT number, you can then file the BOC-3 Form through the FMCSA’s registration system. You will need to provide the following information in order to complete the BOC-3 Form:
-Name of the Entity
-Principal Place of Business
-Hazardous Materials Carriers
-Air & Motor Carriers
You can find more information about how to file the BOC-3 Form, as well as a copy of the actual form, on the FMCSA’s website.
