DOT says new drug
test rule will protect the innocent
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Department of Transportation is
soliciting input from truckers and other transportation
workers on a new rule the DOT says is aimed at protecting
innocent participants in drug-testing programs.
The DOT says its final rule -- or IFR -- would prevent unfair
accusations against individuals who naturally produce "highly
dilute" urine specimens.
Issued May 28 and made effective immediately, the interim
final rule -- or IFR -- widens the DOT definition of "dilute
It also changes the amount of a chemical called "creatinine"
that is allowed. It is sometimes found in a urine specimen
that triggers a finding that the individual has refused to
take a drug test.

highly dilute specimens shouldn't necessarily trigger a
DOT's expanded category of dilute specimens includes those
containing two to 20 milligrams of creatinine per deciliter.
While HHS considers whether to change the creatinine levels
for which laboratories test, the DOT is taking this interim
step as an added precaution against unfair accusations.
Dilute specimens will not cause the employee to be regarded as
violating the regulation. However, employees who provide
dilute specimens in the two- to five-milligram-per-deciliter
range are to undergo immediate retesting under direct
observation as a safeguard for the integrity of the program.
