At the start of 2017, there will be 6- digit MC numbers issued to all new candidates by the agency coming from a pool of recycled numbers that were never issued or unused. The FMSCA warns that some systems may need to be changed. This will be to welcome the motor carrier numbers longer than 6-digits. These revisions to the MC number will not disrupt any existing DOT numbers or MC numbers.
Information is being requested by IRP and IFTA. Your opinion is needed on the new data system that would relieve motor carriers from presenting IRP and IFTA credentials. Motor carriers would show status electronically. This crossover requests the opinion of the industry that it affects. IRP and IFTA would like your response in a timely manner to push this overall concept.
