Who does this change affect?

DOT-regulated employers that are required to submit their annual drug/alcohol testing data to the DOT Agency that regulates them (e.g., FTA, FRA, FMCSA, PHMSA, FAA).

If I don’t already have a account, how do I set up my account?

  • Employers who will be required to submit their CY 2023 drug/alcohol data will receive an email or letter from DOT with a 32-digit code and will enter this code once they open the MIS website (
  • After entering the 32-digit code, the employer will then be directed to the webpage to create an account with
    • The first step in creating an account with is to enter your email address.
    • Next, you will be asked to confirm the email address you entered.
    • Next, you will be asked to create and confirm a password for your account.
    • Next, you will be asked to choose an ‘authentication method’ (such as a one-time code that is sent to your phone). Choosing the ‘text message’ option is the simplest of methods to use.
    • Finally, you will be directed to your company-specific account in DAMIS (and you can begin entering your data).

If you already have a account (e.g., because you created one for access to FMCSA’s Clearinghouse), just sign into your account.


Does this change how I enter my company’s MIS data?

No!  Once in the MIS system, employers will enter their drug and alcohol data the same way they always have.  Again, the only change is how employers sign into the MIS system.

NOTE:  Consortium/Third Party Administrators can help prepare the MIS data for their DOT-regulated customers; however, only DOT-regulated employers will be able to sign in and submit their information into MIS.

Is there anything employers need to do now?

No, there is nothing employers need to do now.  More information will be provided to employers either by the Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance (ODAPC) or by the DOT Agency that regulates them (e.g., FMCSA, PHMSA, FTA, FTA, or FRA) as the January 1, 2024, effective date approaches.
