Background

    Title 49 U.S.C. 13901 and 13902 contains basic licensing procedures 
for registering foreign (Mexico-based) motor carriers to operate across 
the U.S.-Mexico international border into the United States. Part 368 
of title 49, CFR, contains the regulations that require foreign 
(Mexico-based) motor carriers to apply to the FMCSA for a Certificate 
of Registration to provide interstate transportation in municipalities 
in the United States on the U.S.-Mexico international border or within 
the commercial zones of such municipalities as defined in 49 U.S.C. 
13902(c)(4)(A). The FMCSA carries out this registration program under 
authority delegated by the Secretary of Transportation.
    Foreign (Mexico-based) motor carriers use Form OP-2 to apply for 
Certificate of Registration authority at the FMCSA. The form requests 
information on the foreign motor carrier's name, address, U.S. DOT 
Number, form of business (e.g., corporation, sole proprietorship, 
partnership), locations where the applicant plans to operate, types of 
registration requested (e.g., for-hire motor carrier, motor private 
carrier), insurance, safety certifications, household goods arbitration 
certifications, and compliance certifications.

Public Comments Invited

    FMCSA requests that you comment on any aspect of this information 
collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary 
for FMCSA to perform its functions, (2) the accuracy of the estimated 
burden, (3) ways for the FMCSA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and 
clarity of the collected information, and (4) ways that the burden 
could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected 
information. The agency will summarize or include your comments in the 
request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
