With the DACH experiencing crashes, businesses are concerned that they may be punished for not registering.
This is not the case.
Users are not penalized if they do not or are unable to register with the DACH. Violations result only from companies that aren’t registered and must make a query or submit information to the Clearinghouse.
If you have no intention of hiring anyone after the January 6, 2020 DACH compliance date, then you may wait to register until you must report information or conduct the first limited annual query.
If there are no new hires, reports, or DACH inquiries, you should register directly at the DACH website as an intermediate step until the FMCSA Portal is working. Due to the portal downtime, DACH is receiving a high volume of calls, so you may be asked to leave a message for a call-back.
You can set up your Portal account anytime without connecting your Clearinghouse account. However, you will eventually need to link your Clearinghouse account to your Portal account when the portal is working properly.
