(a) If a registrant changes its name after the registration receipt has been issued, the registrant shall submit to the Commission a copy of the reentitlement issued by the ICC. The Commission shall require proof of insurance, in accordance with the rules of this Subchapter, to be resubmitted in the new name prior to a replacement registration receipt being issued. All old copies of the registration receipt carried in the cab of the motor vehicles must be destroyed and replaced with new copies of the replacement registration receipt.

(b) A change of ownership is not considered a name change. The current registrant (prior owners) must notify the Commission to cancel its registration. New owners shall register as an initial registrant.

(c) If the registrant changes its business address, the Commission will require filing of a copy of the notice (letter from the motor carrier to the ICC) submitted to the ICC. New proof of insurance is required to be filed, in accordance with the rules of this Subchapter, with the Commission. New proof of insurance is not required provided only the street, route or box number changed.
