SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

FMCSA's recent rule harmonizing Schedule I drug requirements included several changes to the Instructions to the Medical Examination Report for Commercial Driver Fitness Determination, form 649-F (6045). Although no changes were to be made to the form itself, due to a printing error, several changes were inadvertently made. The following correction reverses those changes.

In FR Doc. 2012-1905 appearing on page 4483 in the Federal Register of Monday, January 30, 2012, in Instruction 8, correct the form in § 391.43(f) to read as follows:

§ 391.43 Medical examination; certificate of physical examination.
