DOT Safety Regulation Update Fast-Fax™
Week of September 19, 2011
Foley Services Your Single Source for DOT Compliance
The new (2010) Custody and Control Form goes into full-time effect on October 1. If you haven’t already changed over, now is the time.
This week’s Fast-Fax is a special edition Client Alert for all DOT drug and alcohol testing clients, including FMCSA, FTA, PHMSA, USCG, FRA, and FAA clients.
The 2010 Federal Custody and Control Form — which was introduced in October of last year and run in conjunction with the 2000 CCF for the last 12 months — will become the only Federal CCF allowed by the regulations on October 1.
The new CCF contained a number of changes most obviously, it includes a number of boxes to identify the DOT mode of the donor (found in Step One, Section D).
We have taken efforts to refit our clients with new CCFs in time for the regulatory change. You, however, should still check to make sure that you are using the correct CCF.
Review your stockpile of CCFs:
- If you have both old CCFs and the new CCFs discard the old ones, you will no longer be able to use them.
- If you have DOT CCFs that DO NOT include the boxes identifying DOT mode call Foley Carrier Services at 1-800-253-5506 ext. 0867 and we will furnish you with the correct forms. Once you have received your new forms, discard the old ones.
While you are reviewing your CCFs please review the MRO information found in Step One, Section B. Discard the forms if your MRO information still reads as the following:

DeFazio Slams FMCSA Over Mexican Trucks. Representative Peter DeFazio (D-OR) has openly attacked the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration over the issue of Mexican trucks traveling on US highways. DeFazio, in a letter made public this week, challenged administrator Anne Ferro over the agency’s failure to respond to issues brought up during an audit of the plan to allow Mexican trucks across the border.
DeFazio also posited that FMCSA was over-reaching; going beyond the limited mandate from Congress to allow Mexican carriers to operate in the United States.
The full text of DeFazio’s letter is available on the Transportation Ticker Blog.
