Important Changes to DOT’s DAMIS Submission Process

Important Changes to DOTs DAMIS Submission Process

Beginning January 1, 2024, access to the DOT’s drug and alcohol MIS (DAMIS) will transition to As part of the transition, requires multifactor authentication, which removes the ability for TPAs to submit this content for customers. Submissions must now be completed by the DOT-regulated employers themselves.

This update is specifically for DOT-regulated employers required to submit their annual drug and alcohol testing information. Agencies within the DOT, including the FTA, FRA, FMCSA, PHMSA, and FAA, will all be part of this change. We have included a table of submission requirements by modality at the end of this blog.
