Hi Guys,

Have you hear of it?
Have your company/driver registred?
What do you think?

CDL Clearinghouse Rule Takes Effect January 6, 2020
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has established the Commercial Driver's License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, a database under the Agency's administration that will contain controlled substances (drug) and alcohol test result information for the holders of Commercial Driver's Licenses (CDLs).

The rule requires FMCSA-regulated motor carrier employers, Medical Review Officers (MROs), Substance Abuse Professionals (SAPs), and consortia/third party administrators (C/TPAs) supporting US DOT testing programs to report verified positive, adulterated, and substituted drug test results, positive alcohol test results, test refusals, negative return-to-duty test results, and information on follow-up testing. Complete information including FAQ's can be found at https://clearinghouse.fmcsa.dot.gov/Learn.

It's good for the US as I think it's a shit show between the states. Just call whoever is doing your testing now and they should be able to help you out.

All Carriers MUST register for a clearing house account, and even if they are going to be using a third party to oversee (think Drivercheck) the carrier must purchase the quantity of checks (queries) that they are going to conduct.
As well,,

EVERY ONE OF YOUR DRIVERS MUST BE REGISTERED WITH THE CLEARINGHOUSE.
IF there is a record in the clearing house when you do a request, the driver MUST allow you to see it and if they are not registered, they won't get the email indcating that you have sent a request. If they do not respond, or allow in 24 hours they must be removed from safety sensitive postions, ie: removed from driving.

This is the most important step that I can find, GET YOUR DRIVERS REGISTERED with the clearinghouse.
