Consortiums fulfill requirement for random drug testing programs

Random drug testing programs are one of the most challenging DOT drug testing requirements for employers and owner-operators to fulfill on their own. It is primarily for this reason that many smaller employers and sole proprietors contract with a Certified Third Party Administrator (C-TPA).

Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) is a Certified Third Party Administrator that conducts random drug testing programs for customers in northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. We help employers and owner-operators meet compliance requirements pertaining to DOT drug testing rules.

Joining a Consortium/Third-Party Administrator (C/TPA) such as WDTC enables you to meet the required percentage of randomly tested drivers, assuming the C/TPA tests at appropriate rates. In addition to letting experts conduct your random drug testing program, the advantage of a consortium is your company will be in compliance even if the number of your drivers who are actually tested falls below the threshold that would exist if you tested on your own.

Random drug testing programs take the guesswork out of compliance

While employers ultimately are responsible for ensuring they are in compliance with random drug testing programs and other DOT requirements, C-TPAs reduce your risk by virtue of their training and certification.

Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium provides the benefit of a larger group size and process expertise for employers and owner-operators who are looking to fulfill the DOT requirement for random drug testing programs. We also can provide guidance on questions such as, is CBD detected in drug tests? (The answer is probably not, but better to be safe than sorry.)

Here is a quick reminder about the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, the database established this year by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. You should have registered as an authorized user already with the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse. The website also includes links to FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Testing Program resources and rules pertaining to DOT random drug testing programs.
