When should you file an MCS-150 update?
An MCS-150 update (aka Biennial Update) is required by the FMCSA every two years at a minimum to obtain and maintain your USDOT number.
In addition to submitting biennial updates, you’ll need to file an MCS-150 update if you have:
- Changed your business address
- Changed your company name
- Changed your operating authority
- Become a hazardous materials carrier
- Added to or reduced the number of vehicles in your fleet
- Make any other changes to your business
Any time you make changes to your trucking business and operations, you should file an MCS-150 update.
Why is the MCS-150 Update Important?
The FMCSA uses the information you submit to calculate your safety performance scores according to its new safety measurement system: Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA score). Out-of-date or otherwise inaccurate data can negatively impact your safety scores and, subsequently, your trucking business.
Keeping your company information up to date is mission-critical for keeping your trucking company in compliance and on the road.
Working with our Compliance Specialists, you’ll have access to a vast amount of experience and knowledge to help navigate your filings and updates, keeping your trucking business compliant and running successfully.
