FMCSA provides update on posting of revised driver examination forms

16 Dec 2015 9:08 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Medical Examiner's Certification Integration final rule requires certified Medical Examiners (MEs) to continue using the current driver examination forms found on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website until December 22, 2015, and to use the newly revised driver examination forms discussed in the final rule beginning December 22, 2015.

FMCSA posted the final PDF versions of the Medical Examination Report (MER) Form, MCSA-5875 and Medical Examiner's Certificate (MEC) Form, MCSA-5876 on the FMCSA and National Registry websites. However, the agency reports that the delays in posting the forms do not allow examiners enough time to fulfill their duties.

As a result of the unexpected delays in posting the final versions of the driver examination forms and recognizing that MEs need to have access to the forms prior to the effective date for a number of reasons, the FMCSA is planning to postpone the effective date for use of the newly revised MER and MEC. FMCSA will be publishing a Federal Register notice announcing this change and providing a revised effective date.  2015 © J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.® All rights reserved.
