Medical Examiner’s Requirement to Upload Examination Results
Function to Submit Results of CMV Driver Exams to the National Registry
The functionality for certified medical examiners to submit results of CMV driver examinations into the National Registry was restored on June 22, 2018. The functionality for designated Medical Examiner Administrative Assistants (MEAAs) and third-party organizations to submit results of CMV driver examinations on behalf of certified Medical Examiners (MEs) was restored on August 13, 2018.
Reporting Daily and Backlog Examination Results
Since access to submit results of CMV driver examinations has been restored for MEs, MEAAs, and third-party organizations, MEs are now required to upload results of examinations performed by midnight (local time) of the next calendar day following each examination as outlined in the Medical Examiner’s Certification Integration final rule extension.
FMCSA is not requiring MEs to immediately upload results of the examinations performed during the National Registry outage. Instead, FMCSA will publish a Federal Register notice announcing that MEs will have an extended period of time to enter results of examinations performed during the National Registry outage, without penalties. In an effort to limit the time burden on the MEs, we will ensure that MEs have ample time to upload results of these exams. Once the Federal Register notice is published, FMCSA will email all certified MEs.
