Drug & Alcohol Testing

Drug and Alcohol Testing for Ships Crew

Eco-Management and Ship Supply provide alcohol and drug testing services to the maritime industry worldwide.
Our testing service is based on OCIMF guidelines and national regulations. We can drug and alcohol testing for ships at anchorage, alongside the terminal or dry dock.
Alcohol consumption on board a ship can be a difficult subject. Shipping regulations state that crew members need to follow the drug and alcohol policies of the shipping company they’re employed with. As a result, part of the responsibility is assigned to the ship and the crew. However, there are a few general guidelines to follow when it comes to consumption on board. This depends on the region and the type of ship.

We comply with the statutory requirements of the maritime industry. OCIMF suggests a list of substances that include but are not limited to, marijuana, cocaine, opiates, phencyclidine (PCP), and amphetamines and their derivatives that should be tested. Ship crew is generally tested for these 5 drugs and may include additional drugs depending on the availability of specific drugs.
Every captain likes to think that his or her vessel is completely drug-free, of course, but trusting luck in this matter really shouldn’t be an option. These days, there is a requirement to implement random drug-testing programs, in order to ensure crew members are free from illegal substances and are therefore safe to work on board.
