  • National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners II


  • The purpose of the Medical Examiner’s Certification Integration final rule is to facilitate the electronic transmission of Medical Examiner Certificate (MEC) information from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners to the State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLA), thereby reducing, to the greatest extent possible, the potential for the submission of falsified MECs to the SDLAs. The Medical Examiner’s Certification Integration final rule requires the SDLAs to post MEC information transmitted by the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners to Commercial Learner Permit (CLP)/Commercial Driver License (CDL) applicants’/holders’ records. 
         

    1.  MEC Verification Inquiry

    • Enables the NR to determine whether the Certified Medical Examiner (CME) submitted accurate driver’s demographics as a part of the MEC data
    • Assists the SDLAs in matching MEC data to a driver history record (DHR) 
           

    2.  MEC Transmission

    • Enables the NR to electronically transmit MECs in respect of examinations performed to the SDLAs
    • Enables the NR to electronically transmit Medical Variance data to the SDLAs
    • Enables the NR to electronically transmit updated MEC data (such as the qualification status in the event the MEC becomes voided or rescinded) to the SDLAs
           

    3.  MEC Search Inquiry

    • Enables the SDLAs to submit a request to the NR and receive MEC data 

        
    NRII is authorized by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration - 49 CFR Parts 383, 384 and 391[Docket No. FMCSA–2012–0178] RIN 2126–AB40- Medical Examiner’s Certification Integration.

    Mini Specification Documents

    To assist the SDLAs in planning for NRII, and to help mitigate the impact on the SDLAs due to delays with the project, AAMVA has committed to releasing draft “mini spec” documents for each transaction.

    NR01 MEC Verification Inquiry Mini System Specification r1.0.6 (June 5, 2017) *

    NR02 MEC Transmission Mini System Specification AMIE r1.0.4  (June 5, 2017)

    NR03 MEC Search Inquiry System Specification (AMIE), r1.0.3 (July 2017)


    * What to know about the Mini Specs: 

    • Mini specs are the complete AMIE specification for the transaction. 
    • The CDLIS Working Group and FMCSA approve each mini spec before they are made available to the SDLAs.  
    • Mini specs are not final—changes may be required due to findings during AAMVA development and internal/integration testing.  
    • SDLAs are not required to use the mini specs. They are published to allow the SDLAs to begin planning, should they choose to. 
    • SDLAs that choose to use the mini specs run the risk of having to make code changes after AAMVA development and testing is completed. (AAMVA will make every effort to minimize changes to the mini specs.)
