Drug Screening Requirements

The requirements for chemical drug screening of credentialed mariners is contained in 46 CFR Part 16 Chemical Testing. In short, these regulations state that all mariners employed on a vessel carrying passengers or cargo for hire, or engaged in any other commercial enterprise, must participate in a random USCG / DOT Drug Screening program. And, yes, the USCG / DOT Drug Screening tests for Marijuana as well as other dangerous drugs. These random drug screening programs are called consortiums and the consortium that you participate in must be a maritime consortium. Here are a couple of links to maritime consortiums.
