   A former DOT-certified medical examiner has been sentenced in connection with a falsified CMV driver certificate
    Dr. Michael A. McCormick was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia to three years of probation, a $1,000 fine and $100 special assessment. McCormick pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements in connection with a Department of Transportation medical examination.
    According to the Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General (DOT-OIG), in April 2017 McCormick told staff at his business, Express Med Urgent Care, to conduct a DOT physical exam on a patient seeking to operate commercial motor vehicles. The staff members, who were not certified medical examiners, completed a DOT medical examination report and issued a DOT medical examiner’s certificate under McCormick’s name and his National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) number. McCormick knew the certificate and report were false because he did not perform the exam, DOT-OIG said.
    Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations require drivers engaged in interstate commerce to be physically able to safely operate a CMV. Only FMCSA-registered medical examiners can perform the physician exams and issue DOT medical examiner certificates.

   After the investigation, FMCSA removed McCormick from the NRCME program and voided 223 active medical examiner certificates held by commercial drivers.

At the midpoint of 2019, many experts expect the economy’s momentum to slow due to the potential for trade tensions to accelerate, global economies to deteriorate or climate-related risks to materialize.

The Port of Zeebrugge is called by 12 liner services that also sail to regions outside North Europe, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Port Dashboard tool.
