Each organization distributed their RFP for proposals, received the responses, reviewed and selected a certified laboratory.

Fmcsa proposes drug and alcohol clearinghouse for commercial truck and bus drivers
FMCSA PROPOSES DRUG AND ALCOHOL CLEARINGHOUSE FOR COMMERCIAL TRUCK AND BUS DRIVERS

March 12, 2014 FMCSA announced a proposed rule to establish a drug and alcohol clearinghouse for all national commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders. The clearinghouse would help improve roadway safety by making it easier to determine whether a truck or bus driver is prohibited from operating a commercial motor vehicle for failing to comply with federal drug and alcohol regulations including mandatory testing.

The Bay Area Drug and Alcohol Task Force generated a list of questions and submitted them to the FTA for a response. The questions were also submitted to the FMCSA.
