Alcohol and Drug Testing: Determination of Minimum Random Testing 
Rates for 2015

AGENCY: Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice of determination.

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

SUMMARY: This notice of determination provides the FRA Administrator's 
minimum annual random drug and alcohol testing rates for calendar year 
2015. According to data from FRA's Management Information System, the 
rail industry's random drug testing positive rate has remained below 
1.0 percent for the last two years. FRA's Administrator has therefore 
determined that the minimum annual random drug testing rate for the 
period January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015, will remain at 25 
percent of covered railroad employees. In addition, because the 
industry-wide random alcohol testing violation rate has remained below 
0.5 percent for the last two years, the Administrator has determined 
that the minimum random alcohol testing rate will remain at 10 percent 
of covered railroad employees for the period January 1, 2015 through 
December 31, 2015. Railroads remain free, as always, to conduct random 
testing at higher rates.

DATES: This notice of determination is effective December 19, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jerry Powers, FRA Drug and Alcohol 
Program Manager, W38-105, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New 
Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590 (telephone 202-493-6313); or 
Sam Noe, FRA Drug and Alcohol Program Specialist (telephone 615-719-
2951).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FRA determines the minimum annual random 
drug testing rate and minimum random alcohol testing rate for the next 
calendar year based on railroad industry data available for two 
calendar years (for this Notice, calendar years 2012 and 2013). Data 
from FRA's Management Information System shows the rail industry's 
random drug testing positive rate has remained below 1.0 percent for 
the applicable two calendar years. FRA's Administrator has therefore 
determined the minimum annual random drug testing rate for the period

[[Page 75758]]

January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015, will remain at 25 percent 
of covered railroad employees under 49 CFR 219.602. In addition, 
because the industry-wide random alcohol testing violation rate has 
remained below 0.5 percent for the applicable two calendar years, the 
Administrator has determined the minimum random alcohol testing rate 
will remain at 10 percent of covered railroad employees for the period 
January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015 under 49 CFR 219.608. 
Because these rates represent minimums, railroads may conduct FRA 
random testing at higher rates.
