WHO ARE THEY AND WHY DO YOU NEED THEM
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.
