About these Instructions
These instructions will assist companies in accurately completing the OP-1 Application for Freight Forwarder Authority. Incomplete or incorrect applications will be delayed or suspended until the applicant has been contacted and the problems have been resolved. If an application is rejected, the application fee will not be refunded.
Please note: After December 12, 2015, OP-series forms can ONLY be used to apply for additional authorities, not for initial registration with FMCSA. First-time applicants must use the Unified Registration System (URS). For more information about URS, or to apply for the first time, click here.
