ARSA’s Grand European Tour…In One Hour

ARSA’s Grand European Tour…In One Hour

11-Jun-2014 Source: ARSA

On June 9, ARSA toured Europe to spread the word about the FAA’s Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) regarding drug and alcohol (D&A) testing at foreign part 145 certificated repair stations. Thanks to Washington’s centrality to international aviation issues, the team was able to “touch down” in multiple nations in one room.

ARSA’s D&A team briefed the International Aviation Assembly, a group of aviation-policy representatives from the embassies of 35 countries as well as delegates from EASA and the European Commission (EC), at the Royal Netherlands Embassy. The message was simple: international involvement in the ANPRM process is needed from both private industry and government organizations in order to prevent the imposition of burdensome final rule. In order to maintain respect for national sovereignty, protect the stability of international aviation agreements, and promote the growth of global business, the FAA needs to hear from the worldwide aviation community about the complexity and challenges of trying to mandate a “one size fits all” approach to drug and alcohol testing.

The ARSA team encouraged assembly members to:

  •     Continue open dialogue regarding the development of any testing rule and use ARSA as a resource.
  •     Work with their governments to determine applicable laws for drug and alcohol testing (may include transportation, workplace, or privacy laws, among others).
