Previous Year Registrations
Companies that have not registered for previous years in which they engaged in activities that required registration must register for those years and pay the appropriate fee.
If you engaged in any of the hazardous materials activities described in 49 CFR 107.601(a)(1) through (a)(5), that is, those listed on the statement as categories A through E, in registration years before 2000-2001, or if you engaged in any of the activities described in 49 CFR 107.601(a)(1) through (a)(6), that is, those listed on the statement as categories A through F, in registration years 2000-2001 through 2020-2021, but did not register, you must do so now.
For registration years 1992-1993 through 1999-2000, the fee is not dependent upon the SBA size standard. For these years, you must submit a separate statement for each of the years for which you are registering. Multiple year statements are not accepted for registration years 1992-1993 through 1999-2000.
For registration years 2000-2001, 2001-2002, and 2002-2003, the fee depends on whether the company meets the SBA size standard for a small business.
For registration years since 2003-2004, the fee depends on whether the company meets the SBA size standard for a small business or is a not-for-profit organization exempt from taxation under 26 U.S.C. 501(a).
You may combine registrations for 2000-2001 and later years to a maximum of three consecutive registration years on a single registration statement. You may use the form supplied on this site to register for any previous period. Be very careful to enter the proper beginning and ending year of the registration period in item 7 of the form and pay the proper fee for the one, two, or three year period.
Complete the "Activities" and "States" sections of item 9 of the form to reflect the type of activities you conducted and the states in which you conducted them during the calendar year preceding the beginning of the registration period for which the statement is being filed. For example, if you are filing for the 2021-2022 registration year, report the activities you engaged in, and the states in which you offered or transported hazardous materials, between January 1 and December 31, 2020.
If you are registering for a year between 1992-1993 and 1999-2000, you do not need to supply the NAICS code, the business category information (Item 6), or Category F of Item 9 (Prior Year Survey). If you are registering for a year before 2003-2004 you do not need to supply the not-for-profit status information in item 6.
