The Medical Examiners Certification Integration (National Registry II) final rule requires certified Medical Examiners listed on the National Registry who perform physical examinations of CMV drivers to use a newly-developed Medical Examination Report (MER) Form, MCSA-5875 and the Medical Examiner's Certificate (MEC), Form MCSA-5876, originally scheduled to begin on December 22, 2015. However, FMCSA is publishing a Federal Register Notice announcing its decision to allow MEs to use both the current and new versions of the MER Form, MCSA-5875 and the MEC, Form MCSA-5876, until April 20, 2016. Also, both forms have been posted on both the FMCSA website and the Nation Registry website and MEs have the option to use either set of forms until April 20, 2016.
