MED 8.2.1 EFFECTS OF MEDICINE, DRUGS AND ALCOHOL

 

IFATCA Policy is:

Member Associations should approach their respective administrations to establish guidelines about the effects of the use of medicines, drugs, alcohol and other substances available in their country.

Where possible, individual substances, including trade names, should be identified and listed in order to give controllers guidance concerning the use of such substances and their compatibility with ATC work.

Controllers should be allocated time off in excess of national standards in recognition of the critical nature of their health in relation to their work.

An inquiry on the secondary effects of medication with respect to aerial security and the alertness of the controller should be made by the appropriate authorities.
