The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced the availability for public review and comment draft guidance for the core curriculum specifications that could be used by training providers in implementing the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners proposed rule.

On Dec. 1, 2008, the agency published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to implement the National Registry, and the proposal included minimum training requirements for medical examiners. The draft guidance now available at http://nrcme.fmcsa.dot.gov would provide core curriculum specifications as additional information for training organizations that may need such assistance in developing training courses and material.
