conduct transportation services only if they are registered pursuant to 
49 U.S.C. 13901. The Secretary has delegated authority pertaining to 
these registration requirements to the FMCSA. The registration remains 
valid only if these transportation entities maintain, on file with the 
FMCSA, evidence of the required levels of financial responsibility 
pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 13906. FMCSA regulations governing the financial 
responsibility requirements for these entities are found at 49 CFR part 
387. Form BMC-32 is an endorsement that must be attached to cargo

BMC-32 form under OMB Control Number 2126-0017 was February 23, 2006, 
with an expiration date of February 28, 2009. Because 2126-0017 was

approval of the form, with the intent of combining this approval with 
OMB Control Number 2126-0017.
    Title: Financial Responsibility, Trucking and Freight Forwarding.
