DER Awareness Information

Are you the Designated Employer Representative (DER) for your company's Department of Transportation/Federal Aviation Administration (DOT/FAA) drug and alcohol testing program? The Drug Abatement Division wants to help you, the DER, be sure that you are Doing Everything Right.

We’ve created a video series covering five topics that are direct threats to aviation safety. They include scenarios based on real-life situations that often lead to an employer being out of compliance, and best practices to help the DER or program manager ensure compliance and Do Everything Right.
