How to identify your base state
Identification of an Applicant’s Base State
All applicants shall use the following procedures for determining the base state to which the applicant must submit its application for registration and/or permit under the Uniform Program.
- If a motor carrier does not operate in a state that is a participating jurisdiction, the carrier is not subject to the Uniform Program and need not submit an application for a registration and/or permit.
- If a motor carrier operates only in a state or states that require the Uniform Program registration (Part I) and Permit (Part II) the motor carrier’s base state shall be:
- the state that is the motor carrier’s principal place of business, i.e., where the applicant maintains its central records related to the transportation of hazardous materials, or
- if the state that is the motor carrier’s principal place of business is not participating in the Uniform Program, the state that is a participating jurisdiction in which the motor carrier records the most miles traveled based on the percentages reported in the IRP Percentages table (within Part I, Fleet Information) of the application.
- If a motor carrier operates in one or more states that require the Uniform Program permit, the motor carrier’s base state shall be:
- the state that is the motor carrier’s principal place of business, if such a state is a participating jurisdiction and requires the national permit; or
- if the state that is the motor carrier’s principal place of business is not a participating jurisdiction or does not require the national permit, the state that is a signatory and requires the national permit in which the motor carrier records the most miles traveled.
- if the applicant transports hazardous waste in a state that requires the Part III disclosure, the applicant should STILL submit its application to the state identified above regardless of whether it requires Part III. That state, if not a Part III state, will subcontract with the Part III state in which the applicant reports the most miles in the IRP Percentages table (within Part I, Fleet Information) of the application.
- A motor carrier may request that the Governing Board approve a participating jurisdiction as the base state other than that identified by the method above, if, and only if, the following criteria are satisfied:
- such request is not based on an attempt by the motor carrier to circumvent any requirement of the Uniform Program or avoid enforcement of the program requirements by its current base state or any other participating jurisdiction;
- approval of the request will improve administration of the Uniform Program; and
- the Governing Board consults with the jurisdiction that would otherwise be the base state and such jurisdiction concurs with the motor carrier’s request.
