Announcements/Notices

  • DOJ Announces a Third Data Consolidator
    The Department of Justice announces a third data consolidator, Autadex, to accept data from junk yards, salvage yards, auto recyclers, and insurance carriers. Please contact Autadex at 1-800-237-3463 for more information on reporting methods and other technical questions.
     
  • CARS Program
    Fulfilling a requirement of the Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Act of 2009 (the "CARS Act"), which was signed by the President on June 24, 2009, the Department of Transportation (DOT) published regulations on July 24, 2009, effective immediately, that require junk and salvage yards receiving motor vehicles traded-in under that CARS Program to report certain information about those vehicles to NMVTIS. The reporting obligations pursuant to the CARS regulations are separate from those contained in the NMVTIS regulations.

    DOJ recognizes that some of the CARS Program requirements are different from those of NMVTIS, e.g., the reporting timeframes. To the extent, however, that junk and salvage yards include in their CARS reports to NMVTIS all of the information required under the NMVTIS regulations, such information so reported does not need to be reported again. Questions about the CARS Program should be directed to DOT at 202-366-1008.

    Four reporting services are available to receive NMVTIS and CARS data. To date, over 21 million VINs have been reported to NMVTIS.
  • NMVTIS Third Party Reporting—Data Consolidator Update
    AAMVA has completed the procurement process for selecting an entity to serve as the third data consolidator for the NMVTIS Reporting Program. A formal announcement will be made soon. If you have any questions, please contact Vivienne Cameron at [email protected].
