SEATTLE – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $232,300 civil penalty against Aviation Technical Services Inc. (ATS) of Everett, Wash., for allegedly violating drug and

alcohol testing regulations.

The FAA alleges that in 2016 and 2017, the aviation repair station failed to include in its random drug and alcohol testing pool 18 employees who performed safety-sensitive work. As a result, the employees performed safety-sensitive work for weeks or months without being subject to random drug and alcohol testing. The employees included quality control inspectors, mechanics and avionics technicians.

The FAA further alleges the company allowed one new employee to perform safety-sensitive aircraft painting work before it received a verified negative pre-employment drug test for that employee.

ATS has asked to meet with the FAA to discuss the case.
