ACTION: Notice. Federal Aviation Administration ycherry on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA has determined that the minimum random drug and alcohol testing percentage rates for the period January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, will remain at 25 percent of safety-sensitive employees for random drug testing and 10 percent of safetysensitive employees for random alcohol testing.

Discussion: Pursuant to 14 CFR part 121, appendix I, section V.C, 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 2005, the random drug test positive rate was 0.58%. Therefore, the minimum random drug testing rate will remain at 25% for calendar year 2007. Similarly, 14 CFR part 121, appendix J, section III.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 2005, the random alcohol test violation rate was 0.16%. Therefore, the minimum random alcohol testing rate will remain at 10% for calendar year 2007.

Aviation Employees for the Period of January 1, 2007, Through December 
31, 2007

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA has determined that the minimum random drug and 
alcohol testing percentage rates for the period January 1, 2007, 
through December 31, 2007, will remain at 25 percent of safety-
sensitive employees for random drug testing and 10 percent of safety-
sensitive employees for random alcohol testing.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Jeffrey Stookey, Office of 
Aerospace Medicine, Drug Abatement Division, Program Analysis Branch 
(AAM-810), Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue 
SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone (202) 267-8442.
    Discussion: Pursuant to 14 CFR part 121, appendix I, section V.C, 
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 2005, the 
random drug test positive rate was 0.58%. Therefore, the minimum random 
drug testing rate will remain at 25% for calendar year 2007.
    Similarly, 14 CFR part 121, appendix J, section III.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 2005, the random alcohol test 
violation rate was 0.16%. Therefore, the minimum random alcohol testing 
rate will remain at 10% for calendar year 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: If you have questions about how the annual 
random testing percentage rates are determined please refer to the Code 
of Federal Regulations Title 14: part 121, appendix I, section V.C (for 
drug testing), and appendix J, section III.C (for alcohol testing).
