Save time and money with Transportation Solutions Consortium (TSC) Clearinghouse Services that will help you comply with and navigate FMCSA's New Clearinghouse Rule.
As an employer subject to DOT requirements you have five main obligations regarding the FMCSA Clearinghouse:
- Queries of new drivers
- Annual queries of all existing drivers
- Reporting alcohol test positives, employer determined refusals to test and actual knowledge, as defined in Part § 382.107
- Reporting negative return to duty tests and completion of follow up testing programs
- Updating policies and education programs to notify drivers of what information will be reported to the Clearinghouse
As an owner operator, a consortium/third party administrator must be utilized to meet the requirements of the Clearinghouse.
Owner operators and employers who do not comply with the Clearinghouse requirements are subject to civil and/or criminal penalties not to exceed $2,500 for each offense.
