Download the presentation.
This guideline responds to the challenges contractors (and service providers) face in complying with multiple different operator requirements in the oil and gas industry, and helps them to simplify their programmes and efficiently achieve contract compliance. The document has been developed within a Steering Committee comprised of operators and contractors as well as substance abuse testing industry organisations and subject matter experts.
It is expected to be published early 2016.
IFDAT is a community of people, companies and organizations interested in international drug and alcohol testing. It is a conference that provides solutions, resources, and the network needed to have successful international drug and alcohol testing programmes.
