FAA combines drug and alcohol testing programs

FAA LogoCurrently, the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) rule on drug and alcohol testing programs requires air carrier operators and commuter or on-demand operators to conduct separate testing programs for their commercial air tour operations. With the new rulemaking, it will allow those operators to combine their separate drug testing programs into one – decreasing duplicate operating costs while maintaining the level of safety intended by existing rules. Any currently held exemptions will expire, effective September 13, 2013.
