Notice and request for comments.
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. The FMCSA requests to renew an ICR titled, ``Commercial Driver's License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse.'' The Agency's final rule, published December 5, 2016, titled ``Commercial Driver's License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse'' (Clearinghouse) established the regulatory requirements for the Clearinghouse. The compliance date of the final rule is January 6, 2020. Since the original ICR was approved, FMCSA has opened the Clearinghouse to user registration, resulting in the collection of user contact information. With the upcoming compliance date, this ICR is needed to ensure that Clearinghouse querying and reporting requirements are met to improve compliance with the existing requirement that Commercial Driver's License (CDL) or Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) holders who have drug or alcohol testing violations cannot perform safety-sensitive functions, including driving a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), without participating in the required return-to-duty process.
