National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners

FMCSA developed the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners final rule as part of the agency’s commitment to enhancing the medical oversight of interstate drivers, and preventing commercial vehicle-related crashes, injuries and fatalities.

Training for Medical Examiners

This rule addresses four National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommendations on comprehensive training for medical examiners, and tracking of driver medical certificates.

All healthcare professionals who intend to perform physical examinations and issue medical certificates for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to meet the requirements of Section 391.41 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) must be certified and listed on FMCSA’s National Registry by May 21, 2014.

After this date, medical certificates for CMV drivers may only be issued by certified medical examiners listed on the national registry. In order to become certified, examiners must undergo training and pass a certification exam.
