Extension of Agency Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review: Aviation Security Infrastructure Fee Records Retention, 4856 [2013-01216]

Download as PDF 4856 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 15 / Wednesday, January 23, 2013 / Notices The Coast Guard annually sets the minimum drug testing rate for the coming year. The purpose of setting a minimum random drug testing rate is to assist the Coast Guard in analyzing its current approach for deterring and detecting illegal drug abuse in the maritime industry, and to encourage employers to maintain a drug-free workplace with the incentive of a reduced testing rate (and associated reduced costs). In every year of testing through 2012, the random testing rate has been 50 percent. In accordance with 46 CFR 16.230(f)(2), the Commandant may lower this rate to 25 percent if, for 2 consecutive years, the positive drug test rate is less than 1 percent. MIS data indicates that the positive rate for random drug tests was 0.77 percent in 2011 and 0.74 percent in 2010. The Commandant is exercising his discretion to reduce the required random drug testing rate for calendar year 2013 to 25 percent of covered crewmembers. The Commandant may reset the rate to 50 percent of covered crewmembers if the positive rate for random drug tests is greater than 1 percent for any one year, or if the quality of data is not sufficient to accurately assess the positive rate. The Coast Guard commends marine employers and mariners for their efforts to create a drug-free workplace and encourages marine employers and drug testing service providers to continue to submit accurate, complete and timely MIS data. This notice is issued under authority of 46 CFR 16.230(f), which requires the Coast Guard to publish the results of random drug testing for the previous calendar year’s MIS data and the minimum annual percentage rate for random drug testing for the next calendar year, and 5 U.S.C. 552(a). Dated: January 4, 2013. Paul F. Thomas, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Director of Inspections and Compliance (CG–5PC). ACTION: 30-Day notice.
