UCR State Performance Standards
In order to participate in the UCR program, a state was required by the UCR Act to file an election with the Secretary of the USDOT within three years after the Act became law. Any state that did not make an election was barred from joining UCR. A state that made an election to participate agreed to be bound by a set of requirements needed to fairly enforce the UCR Act and the UCR Agreement.
Accordingly, the participating states will be required to undergo periodic compliance reviews, administered by, and with oversight from the UCR Audit Subcommittee and the UCR Board of Directors.
