On April 23, 2015 FMCSA published a final rule regarding integration of medical card. Effective June 22, 2015 FMCSA amended the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to require certified medical examiners (MEs) performing physical examinations of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to use a newly developed Medical Examination Report (MER) Form, MCSA5875, in place of the current MER Form and to use Form MCSA5876 for the Medical Examiners Certificate (MEC). Also in the published rule is a requirement for all medical examiners to report results of all CMV drivers physical examinations performed (including the results of examinations where the driver was found not to be qualified) to FMCSA by midnight (local time) of the next calendar day following the examination.
