MTAC is pleased to announce that an educational seminar regarding FMCSA’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, taught by FMCSA Division Administrator Chris Henry and FMCSA Federal Program Specialist Ed Brickner, will be held at the MTAC building on Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. The class will be free for members.
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 Dec. 10 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.
