ARSA’s Voice on International D&A Testing
July 17, 2014
The FAA’s Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) is the first stage of a process that could impose drug and alcohol (D&A) testing requirements on aviation maintenance providers around the globe. ARSA has been working for months to help international stakeholders find their voice and speak out against the rulemaking. On July 17, the association made sure its own voice was heard by submitting detailed comments to the agency.
The submission elaborates on congressional intent, national sovereignty issues, the importance of adhering to bilateral agreements, and protecting small businesses:
- The agency must adhere to the legislation and congressional intent
- National sovereignty must be respected
- Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreements must be followed and encouraged
- The agency must ensure operation freedom and analyze the economic impact on small businesses
ARSA has been joined by a broad swath of industry stakeholders in opposing any additional testing burdens on foreign repair stations. To learn more about our coalition, click here.
