Additional Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Seminar scheduled

Did you miss the recent Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse seminar at MTAC? You are in luck, because FMCSA Division Administrator Chris Henry will teach another class at the MTAC building on Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. If you have questions about the drug and alcohol clearinghouse, or are having issues getting set up on the clearinghouse, you need to attend this class. The class will be free for members. Simply register to attend through the MTAC website

Beginning Jan. 6, 2020, employers will be required to query the Clearinghouse for current and prospective employees’ drug and alcohol violations before permitting those employees to operate a CMV on public roads. Additionally, employers will be required to annually query the Clearinghouse for each driver they currently employ.

Accordingly, all employers of CDL drivers must purchase a query plan in the Clearinghouse. This query plan enables employers, and their consortia/third-party administrators (C/TPAs), to conduct queries of driver Clearinghouse records.

The seminar on Jan. 28 will cover everything you need to know to be in compliance with the drug and alcohol clearinghouse regulation. Register online in advance for this seminar.
