URS Webinar: “Easy steps to complete a biennial update (and what happens if you don’t)”

Industry Webinar Briefing

The FMCSA National Training Center (NTC) is pleased to announce this Unified Registration System (URS) webinar, which was previously publicized in December.


As a reminder, it follows the webinar given in October 2013, which provided attendees with background information on the upcoming URS requirements, and new and enhanced enforcement provisions.

The purpose of the upcoming webinar is to provide Industry members awareness on the implementation of an enforcement provision in the URS—the automatic deactivation of a carrier’s USDOT Number for failure to complete its biennial update of registration information when due.

The webinar will:

  • Briefly go over the URS provisions;
  • Provide step-by-step instructions on how to complete biennial updates with corresponding screenshots;
  • Give examples of warning and non-compliance messages that carriers will receive if they do not complete the biennial update;
  • Discuss steps carriers should take if their USDOT Number registration is deactivated;
  • Discuss popular myths associated with URS; and
  • Provide a high-level URS IT development timeline.

The webinar will be delivered 4 times in February.

Target Audience: Members of the motor carrier industry
