Telephone: (202) 385–2367; email jeff.secrist@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: FMCSA registers for-hire motor carriers under 49 U.S.C. 13902, surface freight forwarders under 49 U.S.C. 13903, and property brokers under 49 U.S.C. 13904. Each registration is effective from the date specified under 49 U.S.C. 13905(c). 49 CFR part 365.413 states for-hire motor carriers, brokers and freight forwarders are required to notify MC–RS when they change the name or form of business. Currently, the name change request can be filed online through the Licensing and Insurance (L&I) Web site, or companies can fax or mail a letter requesting either name or address PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50481 changes. Carriers can also request reinstatement of a revoked operating authority either via fax or online via the L&I Web site. About 39% of name change, address change, and reinstatement requests are received by mail; 38% are filed online; and 23% are filed by faxing a request letter to MC– RS. The information collected is then entered in the L&I database by FMCSA staff. This enables FMCSA to maintain up-to-date records so that the agency can recognize the entity in question in case of enforcement actions or other procedures required to ensure that the carrier is fit, willing and able to provide for-hire transportation services, and so that entities whose authority has been revoked can resume operation if they are not otherwise blocked from doing so. This multi-purpose form simplifies the process of gathering the information needed to process the entities’ requests in a timely manner, with the least amount of effort for all parties involved. This multi-purpose form is filed by registrants on a voluntary, as-needed basis. This multi-purpose form is on the FMCSA Web site so entities could access and print/fax/email the form to MC–RS. The form prompts users to report the following data points (whichever are relevant to their records change request): 1. What are the legal/doing business as (dba) names of the entity/ representative? 2. What is the contact information of entity/representatives (phone number, address, fax number, email address)? 3. What are the requested changes to name or address of entity? 4. What is the docket MC/MX/FX number of the entity? 5. What is the US DOT number of the entity? 6. Is there any change in ownership, management or control of the entity? 7. What kind of changes is the entity making to the company? 8. Which authority does the entity/ representative wish to reinstate, motor carrier or broker? 9. Does the entity/representative authorize the fee for the name change or reinstatement? 10. Does the entity/representative authorize the reinstatement of operating authority or name/address change? 11. What is the credit card information (name, number, expiration date, address, date) for the card used to pay the fee? Title: Motor Carrier Records Change Form. OMB Control Number: 2126–0060. Type of Request: Renewal collection. Respondents: For-hire motor carriers, brokers and freight forwarders. E:\FR\FM\31OCN1.SGM 31OCN1
