New DOT Clearinghouse Return to Duty Regulations to Take Effect Late 2024
Tags : DOT Compliance
On June 27, 2023, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced new regulations regarding commercial driving privileges.
Effective November 18, 2024, drivers with a "prohibited" status in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA's) Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse will be denied or lose their State-issued commercial driving privileges.
If an FMCSA driver has violated 49 CFR Part 40 with a confirmed positive drug or alcohol test, or has refused to test, they will be excluded from performing safety-sensitive functions, including operating a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV). Drivers will only be allowed to resume their duties after fulfilling the Return to Duty process supervised by a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP).
Driver violation records are maintained in the DOT Clearinghouse for a period of five years from the date of violation determination, or until they successfully complete the follow-up testing plan, whichever is later.
Please review the Clearinghouse Return-to-Duty mailer to learn how your drivers can begin the Return to Duty Process.
Feel free to contact your sales executive, account manager, or our customer service team with any questions concerning this new resource outline. You may also contact the DOT Clearinghouse with direct questions.
