FMCSA Clearinghouse Rules

In order to best keep our roads and citizens safe, the FMCSA Clearinghouse rules require employers and other parties to continuously update the database with drug and alcohol violations by CDL holders.

The following parties must report and update drug and alcohol violations to the FMCSA Clearinghouse:

  • FMCSA-regulated employers
  • Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs)
  • Medical Review Officers (MROs)
  • Consortia/Third-Party Administrators (C/TPAs)

Employers will be required to search the Clearinghouse for current and prospective employees’ drug and alcohol violations before hiring those employees or allowing them to operate a commercial motor vehicle on public roads. Employers will also need to search the Clearinghouse on an annual basis for each driver they currently employ.
