DOT TO ADD SYNTHETIC OPIOIDS TO EXISTING DRUG TEST PANEL ON JAN 1ST
USDOT will begin testing CDL holders and other safety sensitive transportation employees for prescription opioids, namely Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Oxycodone and Oxymorphone.
The DOT announced it is adding these drugs to the existing urine test panel to be consistent with the Dept of Health & Human Services mandatory guidelines and “as a response to a national problem that can affect transportation safety.”
No new Chain of Custody forms will be required until possibly mid year 2018.
