A DOT drug test is specific to the transportation industry. In 1989 the Federal Government mandated that all Aviation, Trucking, Transit, Rail, Pipeline, Research and Special Projects and Marine entities implement a DOT drug testing program for all Safety Sensitive employees. In 1994, testing was expanded to include alcohol. Employers under this mandate must implement a program that includes Pre-Employment, Random, Reasonable Suspicion, Return-to-Duty, and Follow-up testing, all of which must be recorded using a “Federal Custody and Control Form” also known as a DOT drug test form.
Each DOT modality has requirements and regulations that must be followed to stay in compliance. The specifics of the programs are outlined in 49 CFR Par 40 of the Federal Register. The regulations are further refined to meet the differences in the specific modality.
