Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse NPRM PIA

The proposed rule would revise the 49 CFR part 382, Controlled Substances and Alcohol Use and Testing to establish the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse. It would require employers and service agents to report information about current and prospective employees’ positive drug and alcohol test results, as well as refusals to submit to testing, to the Clearinghouse. Employers would also be required to search the Clearinghouse for positive drug and alcohol test results and refusals to submit to testing on an annual basis for current employees, and as part of the pre‐employment process for prospective employees. In addition, to help FMCSA identify those employers who do not have a drug and alcohol testing program, the proposal would require laboratories to provide FMCSA with annual summary reports on testing activities of FMCSA‐regulated motor carrier employers they have provided testing services for.
