American Maritime Safety, Inc. , is a non-profit and tax exempt, Section 501(C)(6), maritime trade association established in 1988 to facilitate the U.S. flag maritime industry’s compliance with the U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Coast Guard drug and alcohol testing regulations.
Our consortium serves over two-thirds of the U.S. maritime industry, and administers a drug and alcohol testing compliance program for over 400 vessel operators. Our members include passenger cruise lines, tug and barge companies, oil tankers, maritime colleges, marine pilot associations, yacht clubs and sailing schools.
We provide organizations with the necessary tools and support to comply with regulations that require enrollment of safety sensitive personnel in a Chemical Testing Program (46 CFR Parts 4, 5 and 16). Members may consult with our in-house lawyers on maritime legal issues free of charge.
Our chemical testing program is annually audited and reviewed by the U.S. Coast Guard.
Our programs are a cost effective way to enhance your organization’s workplace environment and help you maintain compliance with industry regulations.
