IRP Changes to Lower Carriers’ Costs

TORONTO—The International Registration Plan (IRP) no longer requires carriers to pay fees over 100 percent when adding jurisdictions during the registration period or expanding their operations into jurisdictions where they had no actual operations during the distance reporting period.

The International Registration Plan (IRP) changes impact the distance reporting and registration authority for all inter-jurisdictional motor carriers registered under IRP, including new and expanded operation, according to the Canadian Trucking Alliance. Cab cards for both first-time registrants and renewing carriers will display all jurisdictions and the vehicle’s appropriate registration weight.

Changes will come into effect starting January 1, 2015, when the new IRP Full Reciprocity Plan (FRP) goes into effect across North America.

The FRP will reduce the number of permits carriers needed to buy and fees they paid for added states. IRP registrants renewing for an effective date of January 1, 2015 and beyond will be registered under FRP as will any new registrants registering for the first time on January 1, 2015 or after.

First-time registrants will pay fees based on the base jurisdiction’s average per vehicle distance chart, the CTA stated. Renewing carriers will pay fees based solely on their actual operations during the distance reporting period.
