What is the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners and how do I find out more information about it?
The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) is a
Federal program that establishes requirements for healthcare professionals that
perform physical qualification examinations for truck and bus drivers. To become
a certified medical examiner (ME) and be listed on the National Registry,
healthcare professionals must complete training and testing on the Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) physical qualifications standards and
guidelines. The National Registry web site is accessible to carriers, drivers,
enforcement officials, and the general public.
All healthcare professionals whose scope of practice authorizes them to perform
physical examinations, as defined by the state in which they practice, and who
intend to perform physical examinations and issue medical certificates for
commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to meet the requirements of Section
391.41 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) must be
certified and listed on FMCSA's National Registry by May 21, 2014.
