The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced that it will increase the minimum random drug testing rate from 25% to 50% annually for the 2020 calendar year. The random alcohol testing rate does not change and will remain at 10% annually. This change only applies to FMCSA’s random drug testing rate and does not change the testing rate for any other mode of transit. If you wish to read the public notice, click here.
FSSolutions recommends that all clients who test under FMSCSA authority check their policy to review the random drug testing rates referenced within. Your policy may need to be updated to reflect the change. FSSolutions will generate 2020 random selections using FMCSA’s minimum rates. If you wish to test at a rate higher than the 50%, please notify us.
