FAA Required Drug and Alcohol Testing Program
Athena Compliance Testing can help you with the initial steps to develop and implement your FAA required drug and alcohol testing program.
Employers regulated by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are required to have a comprehensive drug and alcohol testing program. This includes air carriers and aircraft maintenance or preventive maintenance operations.
Drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive aviation employees helps protect public safety and keep our skies safe. Testing is required by the Omnibus Transportation Employees Testing Act of 1991 and by DOT and FAA regulations (49 CFR part 40 and 14 CFR part 120). The FAA Drug Abatement Division oversees the aviation industry’s compliance with the drug and alcohol testing law and regulations.
