Tip of the Week: Viewing the Agent Reporting Agreement (ARA)

The purpose of the Agent Reporting Agreement (ARA) is to address how agents report and settle ARC Traffic Documents through the ARC-administered Settlement Plan competitively and efficiently, as well as outline the rights and obligations of the parties to this Agreement. It defines the requirements for an agent to receive and maintain their ARC accreditation. To familiarize yourself with the ARA, or to review any of the rights or obligations mentioned within, it is available in a PDF format on our website. The Table of Contents will help you navigate through the document. You can access the ARA by clicking here. You can also go to our corporate site, scroll over the Support heading and under Agency Resources, click on the Agent Reporting Agreement (ARA) link.
