Required by the SAFETY-LU legislation signed by President Bush in 2005, the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) program to increase highway safety by reducing accidents caused by driver medical conditions.
The NRCME promotes the consistent application of FMCSA Medical Standards, Advisory Criteria and Guidelines thru mandatory medical examiner training and certification. Certified Medical Examiners (CMEs) will be composed primarily of Chiropractic Physicians and other selected medical professionals. To perform the Commercial Motor Vehicle Driver medical exam after April 20, 2014, medical examiners must become certified in the National Registry.
Dr. Erich Snyder is already registered through the NRCME and is on the list of approved physicians who have completed extensive training in performing DOT/CDL physicals and is therefore able to report to the FMCSA drivers who qualify and are able to continue to drive.
Commercial drivers will be required to use a Certified Medical Examiner in the National Registry for medical exams and certificates issued after May 21, 2014.
Motor Carrier Requirements:
Motor Carriers are required to verify that their drivers' medical exam was performed by a Certified Medical Examiner in the National Registry beginning May 21, 2014.
