Helpful notes:

  • There is no way to set an alcohol test to "positive" or "negative" as there is for a POCT or lab-based drug test. Rather, the system automatically determines the result based off the alcohol level values entered. For all federally regulated tests, the level is considered positive at .02 or higher, while non-DOT tests look to the account configuration setting to see what level is considered positive. (more)
