Alcohol and drug use are known causes of railroad accidents, and any railroad accident has the potential to result in devastating loss of life and infrastructure damage. As a DOT mode, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) requires railroad industry employees to submit to comprehensive drug and alcohol testing programs. If you manage employees that need to have an FRA drug test, you need a comprehensive drug and alcohol testing program that keeps your organization in full compliance.

You can rely on AZC Drug Testing for all of your FRA drug test requirements. We provide consortium and custom solutions, and our collection sites are accessible nationwide.

Who Is Required to Have an FRA Drug Test Program?​​

To learn more about how the FRA drug and alcohol testing requirements may affect your organization, contact a program manager at AZC Drug Testing. We’ll be happy to review your situation and discuss your compliance needs.


AZC Drug Testing develops and administers comprehensive FRA drug test programs to help keep the U.S. safe from devastating railroad accidents. If you’re the HR manager of a smaller railroad company, we recommend enrolling in our consortium program. This adds your employees to a larger pool beyond your company for the purpose of random drug and alcohol testing. For larger rail companies, we develop custom drug and alcohol testing programs that meet all DOT and FRA regulations.

Testing Procedures​

Random drug and alcohol testing is a crucial component of DOT regulations, and all random testing is included with our consortium fee. We apply a scientific, industry-accepted method for selecting random testing subjects, and we handle everything from collection to notifications to follow-ups. AZC Drug Testing also provides pre-employment and post-accident testing as required by DOT regulations. All drug screens are facilitated by our national network of collection sites, SAMHSA-certified laboratories, and Medical Review Officer (MRO) services. All certified results are delivered via our secure reporting system.

Audit Support

Our consortium programs are well-regarded among federal auditors. We provide complete audit support services for your company as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing your FRA drug test program will meet the standards of all DOT and FRA requirements. Our program managers have extensive experience working with DOT auditors across all modes of transportation.

Reporting and Documentation

AZC Drug Testing provides all required semi-annual and annual drug testing summary reports as well as customized report packages for your company. Our program managers ensure that you receive all documentation your company needs for compliance.
