FAA 2022 RANDOM DRUG AND ALCOHOL TESTING PERCENTAGE RATES FOR COVERED AVIATION EMPLOYEES

DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
Federal Aviation Administration
Random Drug and Alcohol Testing Percentage Rates of Covered Aviation Employees for the period of January 1, 2022, Through December 31, 2022
AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
ACTION: Notice.

SUMMARY: The FAA has determined that the minimum random drug and alcohol testing percentage rates for January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022, will remain at 25 percent of safety-sensitive employees for random drug testing and 10 percent of safety-sensitive employees for random alcohol testing.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Discussion: Pursuant to 14 CFR 120.109(b), the FAA Administrator’s decision on whether to change the minimum annual random drug testing rate is based on the reported random drug test positive rate for the entire aviation industry. If the reported random drug test positive rate is less than 1.00%, the Administrator may continue the minimum random drug testing rate at 25%. In 2020, the random drug test positive rate was 0.771%. Therefore, the minimum random drug testing rate will remain at 25% for the calendar year 2022.

Similarly, 14 CFR 120.217(c), requires the decision on the minimum annual random alcohol testing rate to be based on the random alcohol test violation rate. If the violation rate remains less than 0.50%, the Administrator may continue the minimum random alcohol testing rate at 10%. In 2020, the random alcohol test violation rate was 0.148%. Therefore, the minimum random alcohol testing rate will remain at 10% for the calendar year 2022.
