The leading employee drug testing service provider helps clients to navigate the new compliance rules.
Chicago, IL 25th October 2019 – FMCSA-regulated employers are scrambling to get ready for the FMCSA Clearinghouse. Set to roll out January 6, 2020, the Clearinghouse is a centralized online database containing records of DOT FMCSA drug and alcohol program violations. The searchable, real-time database allows employers to screen and query commercial drivers for any violations of drug and alcohol program.
Earlier today InOut Labs, a leading employee drug testing service provider, announced a new service to help its clients navigate the new compliance rules. The FMCSA Clearinghouse regulation imposes a number of requirements on employers of CDLs.
The FMCSA is the US DOT agency that regulates truck and bus drivers who possess Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDLs).
Among the new employer requirements is to query the Clearinghouse to search for any recorded violations. The employer must purchase queries from the Clearinghouse. A Full Query must be conducted pre-hire, and a Limited Query must be performed annually on each existing driver.
It is critically important for all FMCSA-regulated employers to understand this new rule and what will change as a result. InOut Labs has published the highlights that apply to employers and drivers on its web site at inoutlabs.com/clearinghouse.
The good news for concerned employers is that InOut Labs is now offering Clearinghouse support for all of its FMCSA-regulated clients. For clients only, InOut Labs provides support offering unlimited consultation, pre-employment and annual queries, written policy amendments, sample consent forms and more.
