Any person joining a drug-testing program must have a pre-employment test upon enrollment to verify their drug-free status, unless exempt. A person shall be deemed exempt from the pre-employment test if they have had a Department of Transportation (DOT) approved drug test within 6 months before enrollment or have been subject to random testing for 60 consecutive days within the past 180 days, as per 46 CFR part 16.
The Charterboat Consortium can only confirm compliance by having a copy of pre-employment testing or a copy of other approved documentation, as described in
46 CFR, part 16 on file.
The Charterboat Consortium can arrange the pre-employment testing at most collections sites for an additional $60 per test. Quests & LabCorp have the greatest number of nationwide collection sites.
