RailRoad Admin Proposes New Drug

The Department of Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration, published in the Federal Register May 17, 2012, a Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

The NPRM is proposing additional toxicological testing for non-controlled substances to be tested for post-accident tests.

The substances the FRA routinely conducts for post-accident tests are marijuana, cocaine, phencyclidine (PCP), and certain opiates, amphetamines, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines. They are proposing adding two types of non-controlled substances which are tramadol (a synthetic opiod) and sedating antihistamines.

Comments must be submitted on or before July 16, 2012.
