PMAA Regulatory Alert
PMAA Contact: Mark S. Morgan, Regulatory Counsel firstname.lastname@example.org
PMAA received the following update today on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) driver drug and alcohol Clearinghouse online portal:
- By yesterday afternoon a series of fixes and upgrades were completed. The servers are running smoothly and there has not been any downtime today. The registration and reporting functions are working well, with 11,000+ registrants today at this point.
- The portal authentication function for the Clearinghouse was restored today. If a carrier is having issues with their portal account (locked out, password issues etc.) they may still register for the Clearinghouse and their account can be linked at a later date.
- The remaining issue is centered around problems with Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) validation that impacts a carrier’s ability to query and drivers to register. An upgrade to CDLIS will be deployed this evening that will hopefully improve this issue.
PMAA will keep you updated with the latest news.
