Does NASAP apply for workers subject to DOT drug testing?
The employer needs to check with the facility representative to determine if the facility requires a NASAP test for employees covered by the DOT program. Some facilities require both tests while others accept the DOT test depending on the duties the worker will be performing at the site.

Experienced, highly qualified, independent Third-Party Administrators (TPAs) will manage the NASAP program. Third-Party Administrators will be audited annually.

How do I order a DOT alcohol using eCCF?
DOT has not approved electronic alcohols. Two alternatives are to (1) send the donor with an authorization form requesting a DOT alcohol collection. (2) Call the collection site ahead and let them know that the employee needs a DOT alcohol collection. Make note that the collection site can use a generic DOT alcohol form if you are unable to send the donor with your client specific alcohol testing form.
Who can receive actual test results?
Only the DER/Communicator(s) for the contractor company who paid for the test may receive actual employee screening/test results. These results can also be given to the employee for whom the screen/test is conducted.
Who can work on the participating owner job sites?
Only employees who can demonstrate an “Active” or “Employed” status in the DCC can work on participating owner job sites. An Active or Employed status is achieved by complying with the EPCC and DOT policies, as well as individual owner employee screening requirements (if any). The EPCC only reports an employee’s status to participating owners.
Does the test history show when doing a NASAP look-up?
There are 2 different ways to do a NASAP look-up: through the TRMA online system or through the Contractor’s TPA website. Only “active” or “inactive” status will be displayed on the TRMA online system. When doing a NASAP look-up through the Contractor’s TPA website more information may be displayed including the test results, dates, “Authoritative TPA”, etc.
What is the purpose of the NASAP?
To provide a safe and substance-free contractor workforce while protecting employee rights and privacy. NASAP includes a process for rehabilitation and keeps individuals that test positive from moving between contractor companies without successfully completing an approved rehabilitation program.
The NASAP reduces the unnecessary testing redundancy that now exists for many contractors, thereby reducing the overall administrative costs for both owners and contractors. As the number of participating employees increases, pre-employment or pre-access testing will be greatly reduced. Additionally, contractors will have a choice of who administers the NASAP for them. Third-Party Administrators (TPAs) will have to earn the business and perform to keep it.

Why is my employee not showing on my roster?
A DOT employee must be added to your roster via pre-employment test or DOT roster transfer. If neither has taken place, please send the employee for the DOT urine drug screen or submit the DOT transfer roster to DISA’s compliance department. A Non-DOT employee must be added to your roster via pre-employment/pre-access test or membership verification. If neither has taken place, please send the employee for the NON-DOT urine/alcohol drug screen or login to www.DISA.com to process a membership verification.
Why did the test purpose change?
If you requested a pre-employment test and it changed to pre-access, the employee already held a status in the specific policy. Once an applicant has a status in DISA for a DCC policy, they no longer require pre-employment screens. If your company needs the test to reflect pre-employment our Client Support department can assist with updating it.
