U.S. ISSUES DRUG TESTING REPORTING RULES FOR PIPELINE OPERATORS
Final rules for annual reporting of results of government mandated drug testing by U.S. pipeline companies have been issued by a Department of Transportation (DOT) agency. The reporting rules apply to U.S. companies that operate natural gas, liazardous liquid, CO2, and LNG facilities. Drug testing is mandated under 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 199. DOT's Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA) issued the final rules on Dec. 23, 1993, which took effect Jan. 1.
