Truckers should register in FMCSA DRUG TESTING DATA BASE to alter jobs in 2020

Truckers must register with federal drug database to change jobs starting in 2020
Starting in 2020, the FMCSA, trucking employers, state driver licensing agencies, and law enforcement officials will have real-time access to truck driver drug and alcohol violation information

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has set out new rules that will require truck drivers to register with a federal database before they are allowed to change jobs.

Starting on January 6, 2020, drivers who wish to change jobs will be required to register with the FMCSA’s Commercial Driver’s License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse as part of their employment-related background check. Voluntary registration will begin in October 2019.

All CDL driver drug and alcohol test failures will be recorded in the Clearinghouse, including:

Report for duty/remain on duty for safety-sensitive function with alcohol concentration of 0.04 or greater or while using any prohibited drug
Alcohol use while performing, or within four hours of performing, a safety-sensitive function
Alcohol use within eight hours of a post-accident alcohol test
Test positive for use of specified drugs (This could include a post crash test, a pre-employment drug screening, or a random drug test)
Refusing to submit to a required alcohol or drug test
