Foreign Motor Carrier Registration Certificate Application Under Review
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has reopened through July 27 the period for public comments on the proposed extension of form OP-2, the Application for Certificate of Registration for Foreign Motor Carriers and Foreign Motor Private Carriers. Foreign (Mexico-based) for-hire and private motor carriers must file this form if they wish to register to transport property only within municipalities in the United States on the U.S.-Mexico border or within the commercial zones of such municipalities. The form requests information on the carrier's name, address, U.S. DOT number, form of business (e.g., corporation, sole proprietorship, partnership), locations where the applicant plans to operate, types of registration requested (e.g., for-hire motor carrier, motor private carrier), insurance, safety certifications, household goods arbitration certifications, and compliance certifications.
