Change is Coming to How Users Access the DOT’s Drug and Alcohol Management Information System (MIS)

What’s new with the DOT’s Drug and Alcohol Management Information System (MIS)?

You will need to go through to access the DOT’s drug and alcohol MIS.

What is is a secure sign in service used by the public to sign in to participating government agencies' systems, including MIS. requires the user to set up at least one authentication method (e.g., text or voice message) to secure their account. 

Is there a charge/fee to the user for using


Who does this change affect?

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

When will this change be effective?

January 1, 2024.

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

Employers will receive an email or letter from DOT with a 32-digit code and will enter this code once they open the MIS website.  Then employers will be directed to the webpage to create an account and verify their email address.  After has verified your email address, employers will be asked to create a password and to choose at least one authentication method (such as a one-time code that is sent to your phone). 

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

Does this change how I enter my MIS data?

No!  Once in the MIS system, employers will enter their drug and alcohol information the same way they always have.  Again, the only change is how employers log 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 log 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 specific information will be provided either by The Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance (ODAPC) or by their regulated DOT Agency (e.g., FMCSA, PHMSA, FTA, FTA, or FRA) as the January 1, 2024, effective date approaches.
