FMCSA Experiencing Issues with Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse

01/06/2020

On late Monday afternoon, the Truckload Carriers Association participated in a conference call with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to discuss the current inoperability of the Agency’s Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse.

The newly-introduced Clearinghouse is currently experiencing connectivity issues due to a high volume of traffic.

The Agency recommends that for carriers facing this problem, attempting to hire today, or conducting orientation classes, a manual query of a driver’s history of drug test results would temporarily suffice.

We are awaiting further information from the Agency and will share once available.

If you have further questions, please contact TCA Government Affairs staff at (703) 838-1950.
