Medical Review Board (MRB)

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is proud to announce the establishment of the Medical Review Board (MRB). FMCSA's MRB will provide a critical service in the Department's role of improving highway safety by ensuring that drivers are physically qualified to operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce.

The MRB is composed of five of our Nation's most distinguished and scholarly practicing physicians. These physicians were chosen from a field of many qualified candidates who possess a wide variety of expertise and experience. MRB members specialize in the areas most relevant to the bus and truck driver population. 

The MRB will provide information, advice, and recommendations to the Secretary of Transportation and the FMCSA Administrator on the development and implementation of science-based physical qualification standards. 

The MRB will have a busy schedule in its efforts to review and update all current physical qualification standards and develop new ones as needed. Proceedings of the MRB will be posted on this site. For questions about the MRB, contact
