Circumstances sometimes require corporate entities to file with agencies other than the secretary of state. In addition to serving as a registered agent, CSC can serve as your process agent, which allows us to receive service of process (SOP) on your behalf in a jurisdiction as a condition to registrations, licensing, or regulatory filings.


Sometimes you need to file with agencies other than the secretary of state. Examples of these agencies include:

  • Department of Insurance

  • Board of Pharmacy

  • Department of Labor

  • Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for filing Form BOC-3

As your special agency representative, we scan, compress, and send 100% of the SOP we receive on your behalf (in all jurisdictions) within 24 hours, giving your legal team the advantage it needs to respond in a timely manner.

As a motor carrier, broker, or freight forwarder, you're required to designate a process agent that can file a blanket of coverage form (Form BOC-3) on your behalf with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA). As an official process agent in all 50 states, CSC can handle your BOC-3 filings.

The FMCSA requires your process agent to file Form BOC-3 with all states that require agency designations. Plus, when you choose CSC as your process agent, we'll scan, compress, and send 100% of the SOP we receive on your behalf—in all jurisdictions—within 24 hours, giving your legal team the advantage it needs to respond in a timely manner.

Yes.

Before submitting any filing listing CSC as your special agency representative, please contact your representative to review the best method for submission. CSC also provides Corporate Secretary services in more than 140 jurisdictions around the world.
