The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) uses medical examiners (MEs) to conduct examinations and certify that the 6.1 million active interstate and intrastate commercial motor vehicle drivers meet the physical requirements for safety. The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) allows qualified medical providers to become certified to serve as MEs in support of these efforts. Currently, FMCSA has certified over 69,000 MEs.
Under this contract, New Editions provides an array of support services to assist FMCSA in the ME certification process. These tasks include maintaining the National Registry IT Technical Support help desk to assist those interested in becoming MEs through the process; verifying and validating applicant credentials, licensing, and ME test results prior to FMCSA certifying the applicant; and submitting program data and reports to FMCSA to ensure that all applicants are processed according to Federal requirements and in a timely manner.
