USCG Sets 2015 Drug Testing Rate
The Coast Guard set the calendar year 2015 minimum drug testing rate at 25 percent of covered crewmembers.
The minimum random drug testing rate is effective January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015.
The Coast Guard requires marine employers to establish random drug testing programs for covered crewmembers on inspected and uninspected vessels. Every marine employer is required to collect and maintain a record of drug testing program data for each calendar year, and submit this data by March 15th of the following year to the Coast Guard in an annual Management Information System report.
