FMCSA Changes DOT Drug Test Downgrade Policy
Tags : DOT Compliance
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will no longer accept requests to convert a DOT drug test to a NON DOT test.
An exception exists to this new policy when a violation was incorrectly reported onto the DOT Clearinghouse. These instances must be corrected as soon as the employer is made aware of the error.
Instances where a test was not reported to the Clearinghouse should still be documented by the Employer and a record of justification to downgrade should be created to reference in the event of an audit.
To receive a written explanation of the policy change or to ask additional questions in this matter please reach out to FMCSAdrugandalcohol@dot.gov.
