In November 2017, the Department of Transportation (DOT) published a final rule in the Federal Register. Among other items, the rule added four semi-synthetic opioids -- hydrocodone, oxycodone, hydromorphone, and oxymorphone -- to the testing panel for all DOT regulated employees. It also modified the timing for Medical Review Officers (MROs) to communicate a significant safety risk or medically unqualified decision.

These changes go into effect January 1, 2018.
