BOC-3 Filing Form
To use the BOC3 Filing option, you must already have: (1) a master list of process agents in all states on file with FMCSA and (2) a user name and password. To register as a BOC-3 filer or for inquiries, please call the FMCSA at (202)385-2423 M-F 8:00 AM-4:30 PM EST or (202)385-2400 after hours and holidays to leave a message. Registered filers may file for a carrier or broker.
Federal Rules mandate that every Interstate Authorized For Hire Carrier operating under their own operating authority have a current BOC -3 form on file with the office of motor carrier safety. The BOC-3 form is a list of registered process agents for each state, who, in the event of a legal action being presented against the motor carrier by an individual or legal entity from outside the carriers base state, would accept the papers being served on the carriers behalf and would then forward them to the carrier being served. A current BOC-3 form must be on file with OMCSA in order to secure operating authority and to maintain active operating status.
A current BOC -3 form is also required to be on file on a state level for securing single state registration (RS-3 receipt), exempt carrier registration and private carrier registration.
