ATA MSC REGULATORY UPDATE
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will begin enforcement of updates to household goods Consumer Protection regulations on October 31, 2022. These changes were finalized earlier this year.
These regulatory changes impact moving company paperwork and processes and are overall a positive for both the industry and consumers. They will streamline document requirements, increase efficiency across all stages of a move, and support efforts to combat fraud.
Because they are the first changes to the household goods regulations in many years, the ATA Moving & Storage Conference has developed this high-level summary to help movers better understand the new requirements, especially as they differ from current practices. You should also:
- review the complete text and details of the new requirements: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/federal-register-documents/2022-08808; and
- read the full and updated language of the FMCSA’s Consumer Protection regulations at https://www.ecfr.gov/current/title-49/subtitle-B/chapter-III/subchapter-B/part-375?toc=1.
