UCR Registration

The following categories are subject to UCR fees under the law if they conduct interstate commerce in the United States:

  • For-hire passenger motor carriers
  • Freight forwarders
  • Brokers
  • Leasing companies that lease vehicles without drivers to interstate motor carriers or freight forwarders

How is Interstate Commerce Defined?

Interstate commerce refers to the movement of goods or passengers across state lines or across the borders of the U.S. This includes movements of goods or passengers across state or national boundaries, but also a movement entirely within a state when that movement is the beginning or continuation of a movement across a state or national border.
