Key among AAMVA's goals is improving highway safety and identification security by promoting uniform standards for all areas related to driver licensing. AAMVA is committed to improving driver safety and to the "one driver, one record" driver's license concept.

The Medical Examiner's Certification Integration (National Registry II) final rule requires certified Medical Examiners listed on the National Registry who perform physical examinations of CMV drivers to use a newly-developed Medical Examination Report (MER) Form, MCSA-5875 and the Medical Examiner's Certificate (MEC), Form MCSA-5876, originally scheduled to begin on December 22, 2015. However, FMCSA announced that MEs will be allowed to use both the current and new versions of the MER Form, MCSA-5875 and the MEC, Form MCSA-5876, until April 20, 2016. (Both forms have been posted on both the FMCSA website and the Nation Registry website). This action is being taken to ensure that Medical Examiners have sufficient time to become familiar with the new forms and to program electronic medical records systems.
View the full update from FMCSA, which includes links to the Federal Register Notice, the MEC and MER forms, and a sample CMV Driver Medical Examination Results Form, MCSA-5850.
