Drug and Alcohol Management Plan (DAMP)
In March 2009, Part 99 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations was introduced to cover drug and alcohol management plans (DAMP) and testing. A DAMP is required by an organisation that has an employee or contractor (including the employee of, or subcontractor for, the contractor) who perform,s or is available to perform, Safety Sensitive Aviation Activities (SSAA). Further information on DAMPs can be found on the Drug and Alcohol Management Plans (DAMP) - CASRS Part 99 page.
The DAMP must document the organisation's policy, processes and procedures regarding alcohol and other drug (AOD) matters. The Plan must detail the education and testing of employees engaged in safety sensitive aviation activities and the actions to be taken should an employee test positive to AOD use or refuses to meet their obligations. The purpose of the Plan should be to influence attitudes, knowledge and behaviour in relation to AOD use so that AOD related harm is minimised in the aviation sector. CASA must be satisfied that on commencement of operations their DAMP has been implemented and the organisation will continue to meet the requirements.
Micro-Organisation DAMP Exception
If your organisation is not expected to have more than seven (7) regular SSAA employees CASA has now issued an exemption to the implementation of a full-scale DAMP. It is a condition of this exemption that organisation that have seven or less regular SSAA employees adopt a specially prepared and simplified CASA DAMP. More information on who can apply for the exemption can be found at the DAMP exemption for micro-businesses page.
If you meet the criteria and are undertaking to meet the conditions of the exemption on application please inform Regulatory Services in writing as there will be no assessment fee applied for this activity.
