Title: Anti-Drug Program for Personnel Engaged in Specified Aviation Activities.

Background: The FAA mandates specified aviation entities to conduct drug and alcohol testing under its regulations, Antidrug and Alcohol Misuse Prevention Programs for Personnel Engaged in Specified Aviation Activities (14 CFR Part 121, appendices I and J), 49 U.S.C. 31306 (Alcohol and controlled substances testing), and the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 (the Act). The FAA uses information collected for determining program compliance or non-compliance of regulated aviation employers, oversight planning, determining who must provide annual MIS testing information, and communicating with entities subject to the program regulations. In addition, the information is used to ensure that appropriate action is taken in regard to crew members and other safety-sensitive employees who have tested positive for drugs or alcohol, or have refused to submit to testing.

Respondents: Approximately 7,000 affected entities annually.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 5 minutes.
