ODAPC Updates Drug-Testing & SAP Guideline Documents

The Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance has updated two guideline documents--"What Employers Need to Know about DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing" and the "Substance Abuse Professional Guidelines"--to reflect 49 CFR Part 40 changes that were published in the Federal Register on June 25 and will become effective August 25.

For "What Employers Need to Know About DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing," ODAPC has added a statement saying that all Return-to-Duty and Follow-up drug test collections are to be conducted under direct observation. It also has added four new refusals to test, corrected typos found in the previous version, and inserted hyperlinks in the Table of Contents for corresponding sections.

For the "Substance Abuse Professional Guidelines" document, ODAPC added a statement saying that all Return-to-Duty and Follow-up drug test collections are to be conducted under direct observation.

Both documents have an effective date of August 25, 2008, and can be found on the ODAPC Web site at www.dot.gov/ost/dapc/employer.html and www.dot.gov/ost/dapc/sap.html, respectively.
