USCG Drug & Alcohol Testing

Keeping our Waters Safe with DOT Mandated Drug Testing

USCG – United States Coast Guard-Department of Homeland Security

Safety for the public on the open waters is a primary concern for United States Coast Guard (USCG).

Employees that fall under USCG Drug & Alcohol Testing guidelines within the merchant marine industry, may be combined with DOT covered employees in drug testing pools even though the USCG is now part of the Department of Homeland Security.

Crewmembers that need to be tested in the Merchant Marine Industry include:

  • Individuals who are on board a vessel performing duties under the authority of a license, certificate of registry, or merchant mariner’s document.
  • Individuals engaged or employed on board a U.S. owned vessel and such vessel is required to engage, employ or be operated by a person holding a license, certificate of registry, or merchant mariner’s document.

Every employer has the responsibility to provide a safe and healthy workplace for all of its employees.

Employers are responsible to comply with the 46 CFR Parts 4 and 16 of the Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulations for company mandated USCG Drug & Alcohol Testing program.
