Medical Exams for Local #399

A DOT physical is a health examination mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) drivers. Only qualified Medical Examiners can perform DOT physicals and determine if the driver is fit to operate a CMV. When the Medical Examiner determines that the driver is fit to operate a CMV, they will issue a Medical Examiner’s Certificate (MEC) as proof.

Industry Professionals listed on the Industry Experience Roster in a Driver classification must maintain a valid Driver’s License and, when applicable, a valid MEC on file with Contract Services. For more information about DOT physicals, finding a certified Medical Examiner, and how Contract Services may be able to help cover the cost of obtaining or renewing your MEC, see the What to Know Before Getting Your MEC information sheet, available to the right.

How to Submit Your MEC to Contract Services

Please be aware that the Medical Examiner typically does not send Contract Services your updated MEC. Even if they offer to do so, we still recommend reviewing your Contract Services Portal account or contacting the Roster department directly to confirm that your MEC was received and processed.

The best way to submit your updated MEC is to go to the new Industry Hub (thehub.org) and log into your Contract Services Portal account, where you can view your Classification, submit copies of your required documents (such as your MEC), and keep track of deadlines and other requirements. For additional information about your Portal, as well as user guides and tutorials, please consult the Resources page on the Industry Hub or call 818.565.0550 to speak with a Customer Service representative.

If you are unable to access your Portal account to upload your MEC, you can still submit it to the Roster department via:
