Crew Drug & Alcohol Testing

Contact Us

Marine Testing Solutions now offer a comprehensive service, relating to all aspects of crew drug and alcohol testing on-board vessels.

All testing is carried out discreetly, confidentially and with the emphasis on sensitivity.

Services available include:

  • Saliva Swab Testing
  • Urine Testing
  • Hair Testing
  • Breath Testing (for alcohol only)


The testing is known as a 10 panel test which, in addition to alcohol, tests for the following drugs:

Morphine (Opiates), Cocaine, Benzo, Methadone, Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, Cannabis, Phencyclidine, Tricyclic Antidepressants and Barbiturates.

The testing will also identify prescription drugs, but as part of the before and during testing protocols, we would ascertain with the crew member if they were using any prescription drugs and if yes this would be duly noted.

Prior to testing each crew member would be asked to read our notes-before-testing sheet and would be asked to sign our consent-for-testing form.

In the event of a positive result, all samples are then sent to our retained laboratory for final analysis and confirmation.


All of the above work is fully certified on completion by ourselves and our retained laboratory. All certification is backed up with scientific data for your records.

Our testing protocol is approved by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Society) and SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration).
