The FMCSA’s Medical Review Board will continue the process of revising the handbook for certified medical examiners with meetings July 15-16 in Arlington, Va.
The board, which includes five practicing physicians, was about halfway through the 260-page handbook after its last meetings in June 2018. The board’s job is to provide information, advice and recommendations to the Department of Transportation secretary and the FMCSA administrator on the development and implementation of science-based physical qualification standards.
Certified medical examiners determine whether a driver is medically qualified to have a commercial driver’s license.
The July meetings will be at the FMCSA National Training Center in Arlington.
Written comments may be submitted to the docket by July 8 using docket number FMCSA-2005-20105 at Regulations.gov. Oral comments from the public will be heard during the meeting at the discretion of the Medical Review Board chairman.
