DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AC10 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: +Alcohol and Controlled Substance Testing for Maintenance-of-Way Employees  
Abstract: This rulemaking would revise the Federal Railroad Administrationīs (FRA) alcohol and drug regulations to cover all employees of railroads, railroad contractors, and subcontractors who perform maintenance-of-way activities. FRA's alcohol and drug regulations (49 CFR part 219) contain certain prohibitions on the use and possession of alcohol and drugs. The regulations also contain requirements for post-accident toxicological (PAT) testing, random testing, reasonable cause testing, reasonable suspicion testing, co-worker and voluntary referral policies, pre-employment drug testing, and reporting. Currently, the regulations only apply to covered employees (defined as employees assigned to perform covered service subject to the Hours of Service Act, 49 CFR chapter 211). In response to a statutory mandate, the proposed rulemaking would expand coverage of part 219 to employees who perform maintenance-of-way (MOW) activities. This rulemaking would also make other miscellaneous updates to 14 CFR part 219.
