OPENonline 0 1139

In the past few years, we have seen an influx of complex regulations and increased litigation in the healthcare industry, making it increasingly difficult for companies to adhere to compliance best practices.

OPENonline 0 1816

The FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse will go live on January 6, 2020. The law, MAP-21 or Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act was passed more than seven years ago, in 2012. The Clearinghouse provides the ability to identify and track commercial drivers who violate the FMCSA drug and alcohol testing program.

Currently FMCSA-regulated employers are required to proactively research the drug and alcohol testing record history of any covered commercial driver, in safety-sensitive positions, they intend to employ, using a look back period of three years. The Clearinghouse will make it easier for employers to verify driver history.
