UNIFIED CARRIER REGISTRATION
The Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Program is a federal law that requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce to register their business with Nebraska and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. The UCR applies to all states in the continental United States and the provinces of Canada (if the Canadian carrier travels in the lower 48 states, UCR is required), if the state or province in which your principal place of business is located, does not participate in the UCR program, you may choose another state in which to register. Nebraska will accept applications from individuals and companies located in Missouri, Manitoba and Ontario along with individuals and companies located in Nebraska.
The UCR replaces both Single State Registration System (SSRS) and the Nebraska Interstate Registration (Bingo Stamp) program.
The UCR fees are based on the number of commercial motor vehicles you reported on your last MCS-150 form or the total number of commercial motor vehicles owned and operated for the 12-month period ending June 30 of the year immediately prior to the year for which the UCR registration is made.
