DOT publishes guidance for updating drug and alcohol policies in light of recent opioid testing update
Tags : DOT Compliance
On Jan. 1, 2018, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will expand its current panel to require testing for semi-synthetic opioids. The semi-synthetic drugs that must be tested for are: hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxymorphone, and oxycodone.
To assist DOT-regulated employers with updating their drug and alcohol policies to comply with these new requirements, the DOT published a guidance notice on Dec. 1. The guidance can be found here.
