National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will soon propose a new program that will certify medical examiners to be listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME). The NRCME program is designed to produce trained, certified medical examiners who fully understand the medical standards in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). Medical examiners will be expected to understand how the standards relate to the mental and physical demands of operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV). Once the NRCME program is established, FMCSA will require all interstate CMV drivers to obtain their medical certificates from a medical examiner listed on the NRCME.

As an important partner in improving safety on our Nation’s highways, we want to make sure you receive information and updates about FMCSA medical programs such as the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners and the Medical Review Board.

The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) would be a list of certified medical examiners who fully understand the medical standards in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Regulations and how they relate to the mental and physical demands of operating a commercial motor vehicle. Medical examiners would be required to successfully complete required training and pass a certification test before being listed on the NRCME.
