Nationally Accredited for Administration of Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs
The goal of the Nationally Accredited for Administration of Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs (NAADATP) program is to have a national standards program for companies who provide drug free workplace program management services, to ensure they have company specific standard operating procedures, safeguards, knowledge and professional practices that keep their clients in compliance with federal drug and alcohol testing regulations. There is a demonstrated need for standards in drug and alcohol testing program management. A clear consensus of opinion exists that standards need to be adhered to on issues of random notification, notification of positives, liability insurance, pre-employment testing rules, Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) etc.
The NAADATP program not only provides guidelines for management of drugfree workplace programs, but also affords employers an assurance of quality. By utilizing a NAADATP provider, employers can rest assured that the provider of services is in full compliance with regulations. Through the required contract process, employers are made aware of what services they are being provided. In cases where the client does not have all services provided by the NAADATP provider, the contract spells out what additional services need to be performed for the employer to be in full compliance with any applicable federal regulations.
