Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), DOT.


Notice of determination; corrections.


FRA published a document in the Federal Register of January 2, 2002, setting the minimum random drug and alcohol testing rates for calendar year 2002. The testing rates are based on the rail industry's overall positive rate, which is determined using annual railroad drug and alcohol program data taken from FRA's Management Information System. Although the original notice correctly set the minimum random testing rates, the overall positive rates for drug testing and alcohol testing were inadvertently transposed. This document corrects the error.


This correction is effective January 2, 2002.

Using data from Management Information System annual reports, FRA has determined that the calendar year 2000 rail industry random testing positive rate was .79 percent for drugs and .20 percent for alcohol.

On page 22, correct the last sentence in the first column that runs over into the second column, in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION caption to read:
