In February 2002 the FAA proposed to make it clear that each person who performs a safety-sensitive function directly or by contract for an employer (“including by subcontract at any tier”) is subject to drug and alcohol testing. Several commenters said that the changes were more than clarifying “and would have an economic impact.” Consequently, the FAA prepared a regulatory evaluation of the issues and has reopened the comment period to August 16 before making a final determination. For more details, contact the FAA’s Diane Wood at (202) 267-8442.
