What is the ACI/COATS Program?

ACI/COATS is a substance abuse prevention and drug testing program that was developed in 2003 and implemented by the Construction Owners Association of the Tri-State (COATS). In January 2007, Allied Construction Industries (ACI) formed an alliance with COATS and has adopted this program as their substance abuse prevention and drug testing program.

How does an ACI contractor/subcontractor get started and obtain substance abuse cards for their employees?

ACI members can begin participation by contacting Midwest Toxicology Services, LLC (MTS), the Program Administrator, for program start-up procedures. (See contact information below)

Can an ACI contractor/subcontractor use their existing drug testing program for participating in this program?

Absolutely yes, as long as their current testing program meets the minimum standards of the ACI/COATS program. ID cards will be issued for all current valid tests that are submitted to MTS, the database administrator. Follow this link for additional information.

If an ACI contractor/subcontractor doesn't have a drug testing program already in place, how can they get one set up?
