Challenges in Verifying the Authenticity of Commercial Driver's Medical Certificates

One of NTSB's eight recommendations to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is to enable enforcement authorities to identify invalid medical certification during safety inspections and routine stops. In recent comments on FMCSA's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), which will require commercial driver-applicants to provide a copy of their medical certificate to the state licensing agency, NTSB also expressed concern that, "because the certificate form is not a controlled document, has no standard appearance, and may be freely reproduced, a means is needed for the State Drivers Licensing Agency (SDLA) to verify that forms submitted by drivers are issued in accordance with existing regulations."
