To receive a financial reporting exemption for 49 CFR 369, motor carriers must prove that if made public, the financial report may cause substantial harm to the carrier’s competitive position or impair protectable government interests. Requests are due on or before March 31 following the year of operation, and must include the contents listed in 49 CFR 369.9(c).
Requesting an Exemption from Financial Reporting
Requests for an exemption from annual and financial reporting should be submitted to the Office of Registration and Safety Information (MC-RS), 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, Washington, DC, 20590.
FMCSA will grant or deny each request within a reasonable period of time. While a request is pending, carriers are required to submit any reports under 49 CFR 369.1. An accepted exemption will exempt a carrier from the reporting requirements for three years. Find out more about what must be included in the request at 49 CFR 369.8.
