Drug & Alcohol Testing Program is required for Aircraft Repair Stations (Part 145) and Contractors to FAA regulated employers. National Drug Screening (NDS) provides not only compliant programs and testing but also audit support, Mock Audit services, and Supervisor & DER training. Having this level of support can assist you WHEN you get auditied. There are several types of inspections that the FAA utilizes to insure you are in compliance with FAA DOT regulations.
Comprehensive inspections are thorough reviews of all aspects of employers’ drug and alcohol testing program. In some cases, the comprehensive inspection may be conducted without advance notice to the employer.
Under certain circumstances, focused inspections, which are narrow or limited in scope, may be conducted in response to a specific problem. Problems may be identified from any of a variety of information sources, including analyses of prior inspection results, annual testing reports, individual or union complaints, or other alternative means.
An announced inspection requires advance notification to employers. This is accomplished by a person assigned to notify the company. The employer/contractor in contacted and informed of the scheduled inspection and asked to provide information regarding their size, service agents, new hires,etc.
Unannounced inspections are essential to an effective compliance program. Each inspector may be responsible for conducting unannounced inspections during the fiscal year.
High Impact Inspections.
High impact inspections are conducted by multiple teams of inspectors and investigators from two or more Drug Abatement offices during a one or two week period.
Special Emphasis Inspections.
Special emphasis inspections are defined as inspections that are scheduled to focus on one part of the regulations
