Drug and Alcohol Consortium

Do you need drug and alcohol services?

If you fall into one of the following jurisdictions the DOT requires you to be a part of a Drug and Alcohol Testing Program or Consortium.

  • Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
  • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
  • Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
  • Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
  • Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)
  • United States Coast Guard (USCG)

This is where CNS and our partners CNS Occupational Medicine come  in. Our comprehensive Drug and Alcohol Consortium Administration Services (C/TPA) are available for companies that are regulated by Federal and State governments.

What is the FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Testing Regulation?

49 CFR §382

The regulation related to Controlled Substances and Alcohol Use and Testing is very complicated and lengthy. You can review some of the general guidelines below, but a full description of the regulation can be found in this section of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR).

The purpose of this part is to establish programs designed to help prevent accidents and injuries resulting from the misuse of alcohol or use of controlled substances by drivers of commercial motor vehicles.

Who does it apply to?

You need to be part of a DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Program if you:

  • Drive a single vehicle with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 26,001 lbs. or more.
  • Drive a vehicle, such as a truck (including a pick-up) or trailer (10,001 lbs. or more), and tow a unit with a gross weight of 26,001 lbs. or more.
  • Drive a bus or limo with room for 16 or more passengers, including the driver.
  • Drive a vehicle that hauls hazardous waste of any size, weight, or amount, which requires a hazard materials placard.
