Title: Control of Alcohol and Drug Use in Railroad Operations: Addition of Post-Accident Toxicological Testing for Non-Controlled Substances. OMB Control Number: 2130–0598. Abstract: Since 1985, as part of its accident investigation program, FRA has conducted post-accident alcohol and drug tests on railroad employees who have been involved in serious train accidents (50 FR 31508, Aug. 2, 1985). If an accident meets FRA’s criteria for post-accident testing (see 49 CFR 219.201), FRA conducts tests for alcohol and for certain drugs classified as controlled substances under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), Title II of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention Substances Act of 1970 (CSA, 21 U.S.C. 801 et seq.). Controlled substances are drugs or chemicals that are prohibited or strictly regulated because of their potential for abuse or addiction. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), which is primarily responsible for enforcing the CSA, oversees the classification of controlled substances into five schedules. Schedule I contains illicit drugs, such as marijuana and heroin, which have no legitimate medical use under Federal law. Currently, FRA routinely conducts post-accident tests for the following drugs: marijuana, cocaine, phencyclidine (PCP), and certain opiates, amphetamines, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines. Controlled substances are drugs or chemicals that are prohibited or strictly regulated because of their potential for abuse or addiction. FRA research indicates that prescription and OTC drug use has become prevalent among railroad employees. For this reason, FRA has added certain non-controlled substances to its routine post-accident testing program, which currently routinely tests only for alcohol and controlled substances. At this time, FRA is adding two types of non-controlled substances, tramadol (a synthetic opioid) and sedating antihistamines. Publication of the PATT Final Rule, however, in no way limits FRA’s post-accident testing to the identified substances or in any way restricts FRA’s ability to make routine amendments to its standard Respondent universe 219.211(a)(b)(c)—RR Medical Review Officer (MRO) review of employee post-accident toxicological testing result reported as positive for alcohol or a controlled substance by designated laboratory and MRO report to FRA of Review Results. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES CFR section 698 railroads .....

VerDate Sep<11>2014 post-accident testing panel without prior notice. Furthermore, in addition to its standard post-accident testing panel, FRA always has the ability to test for ‘‘other impairing substances specified by FRA as necessary to the particular accident investigation.’’ See 49 CFR 219.211(a). This flexibility is essential, since it allows FRA to conduct postaccident tests for any substance (e.g., carbon monoxide) that its preliminary investigation shows may have played a role in an accident. FRA uses the additional information collected for research and accident investigation purposes. The addition of non-controlled substances to the postaccident testing panel helps inform FRA about a broader range of potentially impairing prescription and OTC drugs that may be currently contributing to the cause or severity of train accidents/ incidents. Research generated by these data will inform future agency policy decisions regarding these noncontrolled substances. Form Number(s): N/A. Affected Public: Businesses.
