OMB Control Number: 2105-0529.

Title: Procedures for Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs.

Type of Review: Clearance of a renewal of an information collection.

Form Numbers: DOT F 1385; DOT F 1380.

Respondents: The information will be used by transportation employers, Department representatives, and a variety of service agents.

Abstract: Under the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991, DOT is required to implement a drug and alcohol testing program in various transportation-related industries. This specific requirement is elaborated in 49 CFR part 40, Procedures for Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs. This request for a renewal of the information collection for the program includes 43 burden items including the U.S. Department of Transportation Alcohol Testing Form (ATF) [DOT F 1380] and the DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Management Information System (MIS) Data Collection Form [DOT F 1385].

The ATF includes the employee's name, the type of test taken, the date of the test, and the name of the employer. Data on each test conducted, including test results, is necessary to document that the tests were conducted and is used to take action, when required, to ensure safety in the workplace. The MIS form includes employer specific drug and alcohol testing information such as the reason for the test and the cumulative number of test results for the negative, positive, and refusal tests. No employee specific data is collected. The MIS data is used by each of the affected DOT Agencies (i.e., Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Transit Administration, Federal Railroad Administration, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration) and the United States Coast Guard when calculating their industry's annual random drug and/or alcohol testing rate.

Estimated Total Number of Respondents: 3,593,202.

Estimated Number of Responses: 11,841,478.

Frequency of Response: The information will be collected annually.

Estimated Total Number Burden Hours: 1,287,811.
