Joliet, IL, August 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners lists medical examiners (MEs) who have been trained, tested and certified to perform medical examinations for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers in interstate commerce. These MEs fully understand the medical standards in the FMCSA Regulations, related guidance and how they relate to the medical demands of operating a commercial motor vehicle.
The goal of the National Registry is to promote and preserve the highest level of professional standards, training and care among medical examiners. Therefore, the National Registry requires that medical examiners performing CMV driver examinations be trained and certified.
The objectives of the National Registry are to:
-Ensure that medical examiners understand fully the medical standards in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) and related guidance and how they apply to CMV drivers
-Maintain ongoing competency of medical examiners through training, testing, certification and recertification
-Promote public confidence in the quality of the medical examinations of CMV drivers
-Ensure that the list of certified medical examiners is easily accessible
FMCSA is and will continue to be involved in all facets of the National Registry program development and implementation and maintain an oversight role. Implementation of the National Registry program demonstrates the commitment of the Department of Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to making our Nation’s highways safer.
