The department of transportation (DOT) is a government agency whose roll encompasses the regulation and safety within the transportation industry. Consequently the (DOT) has mandated that all of those who work within the transportation industry, especially those in safety sensitive positions are required to be physcially qualified to perform the essential functions of their jobs and be free of illicit drug use.  The chiropractor is legally qualified to perform these exams and is involved within the drug testing industry (both in a DOT and non DOT setting).

The Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA) is the specific agency within the DOT that governs the physical qualifications for truck drivers and the drug & alcohol testing process associated with the trucking industry.

The problem that exist in the medical community is that there is a lack of awareness regarding the physical requirements as outlined by the FMCSA.  Too often, the doctor or other provider performing the exam is not familiar with the established guidelines and therefore certifies the driver where such certification is not warranted.  In an effort to address this problem the FMCSA has proposed the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME).  This registry,requires  providers to maintain a minimum standard of understanding by requiring certification through examination for those who wish to perform these exams for the DOT.

As it relates to drug and alcohol testing, the FMCSA has also establish guidelines for testing for illicit drug use by commercial truck drivers.  Furthermore, as of August of 2001, the DOT has established regulations governing drug testing in transportation workplaces, requiring that personnel who perform urine specimen collections must have complete qualification training. The training must include instructions on the collection steps, completion of the custody and control form (CCF), "problem" collections, and overall responsibilities for the collection process.  In addition to participating in a course of instruction, the collector must demonstrate proficiency by completing consecutive error-free mock collections under the supervision of an experienced collector or trained instructor.
