OPM RIN: 3206-AL14 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Medical Qualification Determinations 

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) proposed to revise its regulations for medical qualification determinations.  The revised regulations would update references and language; add and modify definitions; clarify coverage and applicability; address the need for medical documentation and medical examination and/or testing for an applicant or employee whose position may or may not have medical standards, physical requirements and/or physical fitness standards or testing; and may recommend the establishment of agency medical review boards.  The final rule will provide agencies with more comprehensive guidance regarding medical evaluation and clearance procedures and implementation of a comprehensive physical fitness and medical standards program for applicants and employees.
