The DOT has issued a final rule amending its drug testing protocol to add the following four drugs: hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone and oxymorphone.  They also added methylenedioxyamphetamine as an initial test analyte, and removed methylenedioxyethylamphetamine as a confirmatory test analyte. 82 Fed.

The changes to the drug-testing rule go into effect on January 1, 2018.  Employers should make sure that their testing protocols or their third party vendors who perform the test, meet these new standards by the first of the year.
