Sometimes referred to as a “DOT drug test,” a regulated drug test includes these five drug classes:
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
The regulated drug test collection process and Federal drug testing program requirements are guided by the DOT’s 49 CFR Part 40. It is a U.S. Department of Transportation rule that details the requirements for employers to conduct and adhere to workplace drug and alcohol testing programs for those occupations deemed to be safety-sensitive.
As drug use in the workplace continues to be a concern, regulated drug screens help promote testing rigor for both the federally mandated, safety-sensitive workforce, as well as non-regulated workplaces through the use of “DOT look-alike” panels that mimic the specifications of regulated urine drug tests.
