SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On March 15, 2007 (72 FR 12082), we published a technical amendment that updated several references in the FAA's drug and alcohol testing regulations in title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), part 121, appendices I and J. The technical amendment was necessary because amendments in the National Air Tour Safety Standards final rule (72 FR 6884; Feb. 13, 2007) redefined terms used in the drug and alcohol testing regulations.

In the technical amendment, we changed the language in several charts in part 121, appendix J. When we changed the language in section VII.B.3.b., we inadvertently referred to an “antidrug program,” when we should have referred to an “Alcohol Misuse Prevention Program.” Appendix J applies to alcohol testing programs, not drug testing programs.
