Electronic Audit Checklist for DOT Companies


What is a DOT alcohol and drug testing audit?  The DOT audit or review regulates a company’s random alcohol and drug testing procedures and compliance.

Records that would be required by the auditor would be:

  • Pre-employment screening before hiring date
  • After an accident
  • When there is reasonable suspicion
  • At return to duty after a controlled substances or alcohol violation
  • Reasonable Suspicion Supervisor Training Certificate
  • Personnel list
  • Random selection notifications
  • FMCSA Clearinghouse full query
  • FMCSA Clearinghouse annual query
  • A written drug policy
  • A certificate of enrollment for your consortium program
  • Results from random drug tests conducted over the last 12months

If in doubt… document it! 

Be aware that not being a part of a random drug and alcohol testing consortium  can cause a company to automatically fail. At MCC all of our collectors are certified in DOT collections, and we utilize a DOT approved random number generator method for selection.
