NRC RIN: 3150-AJ15 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Drug and Alcohol Testing: Technical Issues and Editorial Changes [NRC-2012-0079] 

This rulemaking would amend the NRC's regulations to revise the drug and alcohol testing requirements for fitness-for-duty programs.  The purpose of the rule is to revise the fitness-for-duty regulatory framework to include advancements in testing technology, such as changes to the specimens that can be tested for drugs.  This rulemaking is intended to provide a program that is more proactive in its approach to ensure that persons who have unescorted access to NRC-licensed facilities are fit for duty.  The rulemaking addresses three petitions for rulemaking (PRM-26-4, PRM-26-7, PRM-26-8).
