Reinstatement Issues May 2022
Did you get revoked this month by the FMCSA? There have been a number of carriers and brokers revoked because there was no BOC-3 on file. There are 2 reasons why this happened.
1. The FMCSA did a sweep of account who were active but didn't have a BOC-3 on file. Here is a sample letter that was mailed out to each carrier affected by this issue.
2. Your BOC-3 provider may have gone out of business.
Rest assured we are NOT out of business and still going strong after 31 years.
According to Jeff Secrist, the Chief of the FMCSA, there are many factors involved in this process. They are working to improve the FMCSA system. The BOC-3 system is one that needs to be overhauled. There is no history recorded anywhere as when a BOC was filed, removed and filed again. It's either there or it's not.
The only time we ask the FMCSA to remove a BOC is if the terms of service was not upheld or the credit card was disputed after the BOC was filed. Otherwise the BOC stays on the account as long as the authority is active.
Watch this 9 minute video and I'll explain more.
I would recommend you subscribe to our DOT-Shield monthly monitoring program. This would give you another set of eyes on your account to catch issues like this. We monitor the MC account, DOT account and UCR every month. Then we provide you with a summary via email.
Watch the video first and then decide which service you would like to choose if this is your case.
1. File the BOC-3
2. Need assistance with the entire reinstatement process (which includes the BOC-3)
