Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Guide

The Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is a database that is maintained by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to record all drug and alcohol testing violations.

Employers, commercial driver license holding employees, Medical Review Officers, Consortium/Third Party Administrators and Substance Abuse Professionals are all required to record information about an employee’s drug and alcohol violations into the Clearinghouse.

PRISM staff have put together a guide for employers with information on the registration and query plan requirements that must be completed by the effective date on January 6, 2020. In addition, the guide will inform employers of the reporting and query requirements once the Clearinghouse is in effect.

If you have any questions, please contact Risk Control.
