MCS Hot Topic Certificate of Non Operation CNO
The International Registration Plan (IRP) handbook was distributed with the renewal package in September 2005. The instructions in chapter 6 (page 6-3) do not clarify the time period that a Certificate of Non-Operation (CNO) may be accepted for vehicles registered in IRP.
A CNO submitted with renewal documents may be accepted up to 90 days following the IRP registration expiration date for the waiver of penalty fees only. Customers submitting a CNO on day 91 or later will be assessed penalty fees.
