What is a DOT Consortium?
Under the regulations, individual owner/operators, small companies and all employers are allowed to join a consortium that is comprised of employers of any transportation modes that are subject to DOT drug and alcohol testing.
We also recommend that you research the consortium to ensure they have the knowledge and expertise to ensure compliance.
It is important to remember that the consortium is your service agent and you the employer still remain responsible for compliance under 49 CFR part 40.
A consortium will often manage the DOT random testing programs of several employers, including those of owner-operators who are not permitted to manage random testing themselves.
DOT Drug Testing USA provides DOT random drug testing and alcohol testing as required by your specific DOT Agency. We also offer consortium and third party administrator (C/TPA) services which manages the entire DOT approved Consortium for DOT regulated companies and DOT covered “safety sensitive” employees.
Our DOT consortium complies with all requirements of DOT 49 CFR Part 40 which mandates that all “safety sensitive” employees be enrolled in a random drug and alcohol testing program.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) has strict regulations requiring regulated companies and independent operators (CDL License Holders) be a member of a DOT drug and alcohol Consortium and failure to comply with these regulations can result in significant fines and other DOT sanctions.
How Do I Join A Consortium?
DOT Drug Testing USA provides all members of our DOT consortium a package consisting of Federal Chain of Custody Forms to be used when taking a DOT drug test, a welcome letter and certificate of enrollment at no additional cost.
