On May 21st, 2014 all Interstate Commercial Drivers and Motor Carriers will be required to begin using an examiner listed in the National Registry Of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) to obtain or renew their Medical Examiner's Certificate.
As a new program from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), it will require all physicans who perform physical examinations on CDL drivers to be trained and certified on the FMCSA standards, guidelines and regulations according to 49 CFR §391.41 (Physical Qualifications for Drivers).
The requirements are found in part §391.41 and §391.43 and the FMCSA has stated that they are on target for reaching its goal of 40,000 Certified Medical Examiners (CME) by the compliance date.
Elaine M. Papp, RN, MSN, COHN-S CM, Division Chief for the FMCSA Office of Medical Programs joins us as our special guest to discuss what the new program will mean for CDL drivers and motor carriers.
We will be discussing the changes of the medical regulations under FMCSA. Are the really changed or are they being applied correctly now? What about sleep apnea? Can a doctor refuse to issue a medical card? If so for how long? What are the blood pressure regs, can a driver receive a 2 year med card? Diabetes, where are they on the new regs regarding waivers? So many questions so little time. Please join us whether you are a driver, a safety professional, a company or a regulatory agency for this hot topic!
