FMCSA Reminds Medical Examiners and Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers that Revised Driver Examination Forms Must Be Used Beginning April 20, 2016.

 

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reminds Medical Examiners (MEs) and commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers that, as of April 20, 2016, certified MEs performing physical examinations of CMV drivers must use the revised versions of the Medical Examination Report (MER) Form ( MCSA–5875 ) and the Medical Examiner’s Certificate (MEC) Form ( MCSA–5876 ). In April 2015, FMCSA published the Medical Examiner’s Certification Integration final rule, designed to facilitate the electronic transmission of MEC information from FMCSA’s National Registry to the State Driver’s Licensing Agencies, and required the use of revised MER and MEC forms. In December 2015, FMCSA announced a 120-day grace period – from December 22, 2015 through April 20, 2016 – during which MEs may use either the old “substantially in accordance with” versions or the newly revised versions of the MER Form and MEC Form. MEs and CMV drivers with questions are directed to contact the   FMCSA Medical Programs Division at (202) 366-4001 or FMCSAMedical@dot.gov .
