FMCSA Creates National Clearinghouse for Drug and Alcohol Testing

On December 5, 2016, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published a final rule that creates a national drug and alcohol testing clearinghouse for commercial driver license holders (CLDs) who operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs).

Under the rule, employers will be required to use the national database to check whether their current and prospective employees have unresolved violations under the FMCSA’s drug and alcohol testing program. At least once per year, motor carriers will be required to use the national clearinghouse database to check on a current employee’s status. Each motor carrier must incorporate the verification into their hiring process for prospective employees as well.

The rule also requires CDL holders to notify their employers whenever they violate a drug or alcohol testing regulation while working for a different employer. Affected employers are any individuals who operate CMVs in commerce in the United States and who are subject to the CDL requirements.
