On November 13, 2017, the Department of Transportation (DOT) amended its drug testing program regulations. The new rule, which becomes effective January 1, 2018, closely aligns with the recent changes to the Health and Human Services (HHS) “Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs,” which became effective October 1, 2017.
In this long-awaited final rule, new drugs have been added to the mandatory DOT drug test panel to help address the nationwide opioid epidemic, and certain processes have been eliminated to relieve unnecessary burdens on employers, C/TPAs, and other parties.
