Inquiry: FQC

Response: FRC

  • The FQC will search the IFTA database and return an FRC message with exact matches based upon the Federal Identification Number (FEI).
  • The FQC requires:
    • Valid, 9-character, sending ORI
    • 2-character destination ORI (‘FT’)
    • FEI
  • The response (FRC) will include:
    • IFTA number
    • Organization name

    • Contact number
    • Status

How does it work?

Inquiry: ACQ

Response: AVQ

  • The inquiry for a Carrier Status Request by USDOT Number and a Vehicle Status Request for targeted information is by:
    • VIN; or,
    • License plate & State.
  • With an exception of the data field headings and depending on the MCSIP Steps, all Nlets Carrier Status Response messages provide the same data elements:
    • If the carrier is targeted;
    • If the carrier is under Federal OOSO; and,
    • If the carrier registration is suspended or revoked.
      • Vehicle Status Responses will return the carrier data for the carrier responsible for safety, but only when there has been a carrier designated.
  • It is important to note that information obtained via Nlets is not updated in real-time. This means persons running the transaction should also confirm if an OOSO is still in effect.
  • Nlets is currently working with PRISM to provide real-time access to data.
