The Clearinghouse Rule is a secure electronic federal database that went into effect on January 6, 2020. It contains information about drivers who hold commercial driver's licenses (CDLs), are covered by the requirements of FMCSA's Part 382 (Drug and Alcohol Testing regulation), and have violated a prohibition set forth in Part 382.
The ultimate goal of the Clearinghouse Navigator is to aid employers, employees, licensing agencies, substance abuse professionals, and medical review officers in understanding who has passed required testing to complete their job duties. By simplifying compliance, Clearinghouse Navigator provides the most comprehensive knowledge-based content and expert-derived insight in the industry.
Here are three ways that our site can help you understand the requirements, fill out forms, and stay informed of changes to the rule.
In order to keep our roads safe for all drivers, the Clearinghouse online database can identify, in real-time, drivers prohibited from performing safety-sensitive functions, such as operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), due to a drug and alcohol program violation. In order to meet the requirements of the Clearinghouse rule, drivers, employers, substance abuse officers, medical officers, and licensing boards will need to learn how the compliance requirements work and how to navigate the database easily.
Our learning center and online classes can help keep you up-to-date on what is needed to test, change and update the information in the database. Our robust online courses give Clearinghouse users confidence that they can meet the new rule requirements in a timely and efficient manner.
Maintaining compliance and filling out the needed forms can be overwhelming. Our easy to use, ready-to-fill-out forms can make the process much more efficient and faster. Our online chat features, along with email/phone connections, and seminars hosted around the country, can help keep you informed and on top of any changes to the regulations and requirements.
Clearinghouse Navigator has an extensive suite of regulatory reference material that can keep you informed of current requirements for the new rule. Our knowledgeable articles and access to experts in the field can answer any questions you may have about the forms and requirements for our industry.
