49 CFR 365.403 - Definitions.
For the purposes of this part, the following definitions apply:
(a) Transfer. Transfers include all transactions (i.e., the sale or lease of interstate operating rights, 1 or the merger of two or more carriers or a carrier into a noncarrier) subject to 49 U.S.C. 10926, as well as the sale of property brokers' licenses under 49 U.S.C. 10321.
1 The execution of a chattel mortgage, deed of trust, or other similar document does not constitute a transfer or require the FMCSA's approval. However, a foreclosure for the purpose of transferring an operating right to satisfy a judgment or claim against the record holder may not be effected without approval of the FMCSA.

(e) Record holder. The person shown on the records of the FMCSA as the legal owner of the operating rights.
(f) Control. A relationship between persons that includes actual control, legal control, and the power to exercise control, through or by common directors, officers, stockholders, a voting trust, a holding or investment company, or any other means.
