of the ``registrant-only'' USDOT Number as part of the PRISM program. 
In an August 9, 2010, Federal Register notice, the Agency initially set 
September 1, 2011, as the effective date of the change. The extension 
will allow the Agency to provide additional implementation guidance 
based on feedback and information received since the August 9, 2010, 
notice of procedural change and will allow States and other 
stakeholders to make necessary changes to their systems and processes 
pursuant to this additional guidance.

DATES: The new effective date to eliminate use of the ``registrant-
only'' USDOT Number as part of the PRISM program is September 1, 2012.

Background

    On August 9, 2010, FMCSA published a Federal Register notice 
announcing plans to eliminate the practice of allowing non-motor 
carrier registrants to obtain registrant-only USDOT Numbers under the 
PRISM program (76 FR 47883). The Agency developed the concept of a 
``registrant-only'' USDOT Number in 1999 to identify registered owners 
of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) that are not motor carriers but 
lease their CMVs to entities that are motor carriers. The Agency later 
concluded that registrant-only USDOT Numbers were being used 
differently than intended and announced the decision to eliminate the 
requirement for registrant-only USDOT Numbers. The FMCSA set September 
1, 2011, as the effective date for the change.
    Today's action extends the effective date until September 1, 2012, 
providing adequate time for all States participating in the PRISM 
program to complete process changes and for the Agency to provide 
updated guidance, as needed, to PRISM member jurisdictions and other 
stakeholders.
