BarnesCare prepares for DOT oral fluid testing

On 1 Mar 2024, in

In 2023, the Department of Transportation (DOT) published a final rule in the Federal Register (88 FR 27596) amending the DOT’s regulated industry drug testing program to include oral fluid testing. Since the final ruling, many BarnesCare DOT clients have expressed interest in adding oral fluid to their testing program. However, DOT oral fluid testing cannot be implemented until the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) certifies at least two laboratories (one to serve as a primary laboratory, and a second to serve as a split specimen laboratory).

BarnesCare will advise DOT clients when oral fluid testing is available. We recommend that our DOT clients seek counsel now to determine if oral testing is a good program testing option for their specific needs. This will assure that your program and policy is ready for full implementation.
