DOCKET NUMBER: 2001-11068
SUBJECT: Drug and Alcohol Program
KEYWORDS: Recordkeeping, International, Foreign Employees
ABSTRACT: FRA proposes to narrow the scope of exemptions for foreign railroads and certain small railroads to FRA's regulation on the control of alcohol and drug use. This NPRM also seeks to reopen a discussion of part 219 implementation issues, many of which were first raised in FRA�s 1992 advance notice of proposed rulemaking on this subject. Finally, FRA invites comment on whether it should expand the basis for requiring post-accident testing (subpart C) and testing for cause (subpart D) of part 219 to include events that occur outside the United States.
