DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AB58 Publication ID: Spring 2016 
Title: Amendments to Chemical Testing Requirements 

This rulemaking supports the Commandant's Marine Safety strategic goal by making numerous small improvements to the drug and alcohol testing program. These changes would close loopholes, increase the efficiency and reliability of drug test reporting, and reorganize 46 CFR 16 into question and answer format. Amendments to 33 CFR 95 would authorize Coast Guard civilian marine investigators to order post-accident drug tests (in the same way as active-duty marine investigators do).
