UPDATE 2018 FMCSA / DOT Drug Testing

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced in a rule published in the Federal Register on November 13, 2017, that, among other revisions to its drug and alcohol testing regulations, it will expand its drug testing panel to include four “semi-synthetic” opioid drugs: hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone.  These changes are being made to harmonize DOT’s drug testing regulations with recent revisions to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs that took effect on October 1, 2017. The changes to DOT’s rules take effect on January 1, 2018. Drug Panel and Cut-off Concentrations beginning January 1, 2018, all DOT-regulated employers must utilize the following drug test panel and cut-off concentrations:
