Temporary Authority for COVID-19 Relief?

The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) presents new challenges in the workplace as you strive to keep your business running and support the health and well-being of your workforce.  With the rule rapidly changing and everyone working to prevent the spread of illness, know that J. J. Keller is here to help. Our safety and regulatory experts are closely monitoring every change.  

 

Motor carriers can apply for temporary operating authority registration while providing direct assistance to support emergency COVID-19 relief efforts.  The FMCSA has issued a notice that it has waived the fee for temporary operating authority, but you still must apply for the authority. As a private carrier operating for-hire authority, a minimum of $750,000 in liability coverage is required and your insurer must file evidence of coverage with the FMCSA.  This assumes you are requesting Emergency Temporary Authority (ETA) with an existing USDOT number.  


If you do not have an existing USDOT number, you also need to submit an MCS-150

 

The FMCSA Registration Office will verify both BOC-3 and insurance on file before notifying the carrier their ETA application has been granted. 

 

The authority is valid for 120 days or until the emergency declaration expires, which ever comes first. 

 

Call us today to start your temporary authority registration.
