Importing a Vehicle

Registered Importers

Active Registered Importers

The following is a list of businesses that have been approved as Registered Importers (RIs) by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to import vehicles that were not originally manufactured to comply with applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs), and to perform the necessary modifications to bring the vehicles into conformance. This list, which is sorted by state, then alphabetically by business name, is a list of all active RIs. Should an RI choose not to renew their registration, or should NHTSA suspend or revoke their registration, that RI will be removed from the list.  

Please keep in mind that RIs are independent business entities and may be selective in terms of the work they perform. To assist you in locating an RI that meets your needs, the listing is annotated to identify an RI’s area of interest. Since the area of interest of an RI may change, this listing does not restrict the type of services that an RI may provide. NHTSA does not endorse or recommend any of the listed RIs, nor does it represent or guarantee your satisfaction with any work or services performed by an RI. Only an RI may import nonconforming vehicles for resale. If you would like to bring nonconforming vehicles into the United States for resale, you must become an RI.

Inactive RIs

If the registration of an RI is revoked by NHTSA, the RI may no longer import motor vehicles that were not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSSs. The revocation is permanent, and NHTSA will deny registration to any applicant whose previous registration was revoked. If the registration of an RI is suspended by NHTSA, the RI may not import, during the period that the suspension is in effect, motor vehicles that were not originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSSs. 

49 CFR 592.7(d)(1). A suspension or revocation action does not relieve the RI of its duties with respect to vehicles imported prior to its registration being suspended or revoked. For any vehicle that the RI imported to which it has not affixed a certification label and for which it has not submitted a certificate of conformity under 49 CFR 592.6(d) as of the date of the suspension or revocation action, the RI must complete conformity work and affix a certification label and submit to NHTSA a complete conformity package within 120 days from the vehicle’s date of entry. 49 CFR 592.7(d)(2). If the RI does not affix a certification label to the vehicle and submit to NHTSA a complete conformity package covering the vehicle, the RI must export the vehicle within 30 days from the date of the suspension or revocation action. 49 CFR 592.7(d)(3). For vehicles that the RI agreed to bring into conformity and for which it has not certified and furnished a certificate of conformity to NHTSA at the time of the suspension or revocation action, the RI must immediately notify the vehicles’ owners, in writing, that their registration has been suspended or revoked. 49 CFR 592.7(d)(4). In addition, although an RI’s registration is suspended or revoked, the company has a continuing obligation to provide owners of vehicles for which it has furnished a certificate of conformity to NHTSA with notification of, and a remedy for, any defect related to motor vehicle safety or noncompliance with an applicable FMVSS that is found to exist in their vehicles. 49 CFR 592.6(i), 49 CFR 592.7(e).
