How long does a failed drug test stay on DISA?

If an employee fails a drug test through DISA's program, it will remain on their account indefinitely. Depending on the industry and/or workplace policy, employees have the opportunity to complete a Return-to-Duty test and process. However, once a Return-to-Duty program is completed, the failed drug test will still remain on the individual's account indefinitely due to owners with zero tolerance.

How can an employer apply for the FMCSA Under-21 Non-Military Pilot Program?

"Currently, 49 states and the District of Columbia already allow 18 to 20-year-old CDL holders to operate CMVs in intrastate commerce—meaning under-21 drivers may currently drive within state borders, such as from Houston to El Paso or from Miami to Tallahassee." Additionally, the FMCSA proposed a new under-21 commercial driver pilot program for interstate commerce in 2020 that is still pending "thoughts and opinions", which can be found on their website: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/newsroom/fmcsa-proposes-new-under-21-commercial-driver-pilot-program. A similar program was launched for military members in 2018 and was proposed two years earlier before officially launching.

It is said that you would have to take CBD in 1000-2000mg doses for it to show up on a test and the fact that THC products are not regulated, and the dosing could be off. Is that true for everyone, or do some clients get to decide their threshold?

There is no test for CBD, DISA’s tests will screen for THC or cannabinoids. Any test that screens for THC or cannabinoids is going to report findings for THC or cannabinoids that exceed the panel thresholds (levels). The origin of the substance will not be considered by the Medical Review Officer (MRO). DISA’s non-DOT corporate policy offers clients the option to customize testing panels.
