|TO:||Single State Registration System (SSRS) and Interstate Registration (Bingo) Carriers|
|FROM:||The Nebraska Motor Carrier Services Division (MCS)|
|SUBJECT:||Important Information Regarding 2007 SSRS & Bingo Renewals, Credentials and Insurance Requirements|
|Date:||December 20, 2006|
The purpose of the memo is to follow-up on a previous notice you received from this office regarding the future of the Single State Registration System (SSRS) and Interstate Registration (Bingo Card) programs. In a memo dated October 5, 2006 we advised you of the passage of federal legislation (Public Law 109-59) that eliminated the SSRS program effective December 31, 2006 and preempted a state from administering a Bingo Card program. For a time a possibility existed that Congress might extend the repeal date; however an extension did not pass.
Effective January 1, 2007, Nebraska will cease enforcement of both the SSRS and Bingo Card programs. Current law requires that all motor vehicles traveling in Nebraska to carry their current liability policy, evidence of insurance, or proof of financial responsibility. As a result, all motor carriers operating in Nebraska must make such proof available to law enforcement upon request beginning January 1, 2007.
The federal legislation also provided for a replacement program called the Unified Carrier Registration System (UCRS). At this time, the UCRS is not ready for implementation. Efforts are on going to get the UCRS up and running as quickly as possible. We will continue to monitor the situation and advise carriers accordingly
Single State Registration System is an insurance and authority compact between member jurisdictions. Carriers must complete an application annually and pay the appropriate fees to the member jurisdictions they intend to operate in. Nebraska distributes the fee to the affected jurisdictions. This program is designed for common or contract carriers, whose vehicles are registered at or over 10,000 lbs. and cross Nebraska borders. In addition to filing the application, carriers must provide proof of insurance (BMC91X), a listing of process agents (BOC3 form), and a copy of the FMCSA (ICC) operating authority.
All FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration formerly ICC) regulated carriers who haul anything other than grain, livestock or produce for hire and vehicles over 10,000 lbs GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating).
In order to apply for SSRS registration you must have FMCSA authority, BOC3 Form (a federal form listing process agents), and a BMC91 or BMC91X insurance form. Once you have all of the above mentioned requirement you can complete the RS1 form. All information on the RS1 form must be exactly the same as the information on the FMCSA authority, BOC3 and BMC91 or BMC91X forms. In addition to the RS1 form, a RS2 form must be completed please contact our office for a current RS2 form. The RS2 form is a listing of all the jurisdictions that you plan to travel and their fees. Once you have completed the RS1 & RS2 forms, return the forms and payment of fees along with the above mentioned requirements to Motor Carrier Services. Once the application is processed by Motor Carrier Services (MCS) w a SSRS identifier card will be issued. A copy of the identifier card must be kept in every vehicle in the fleet. If you have any questions regarding any of the requirements mentioned, please contact us at 888-622-1222 or 402-471-4435.
Contact the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), for the requirements needed for issuance of a FMCSA number. Once applied for, it will take approximately 60 days for the request for authority to be approved. First, you will receive a letter from FMCSA with your FMCSA number listed. You will receive a final authority letter a few weeks later. If you have questions regarding the FMCSA authority contact the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration at 402-437-5986.
A BOC3 form is a listing of processing agents for carriers. You must have a processing agent in each jurisdiction that you travel. A listing of FMCS Blanket Companies may be found on the FMCSA Licensing & Insurance website or contact Motor Carrier Services at 888-622-1222 or 402-471-4435.
