Hi, I'm Gary Baird, founder and president of Compliance Consortium Corporation. When I started this company in 1994, 17 years ago, we hailed as a new kind of substance abuse testing company that put our customers in touch with flexible drug-free workplace programs with fantastic results.
Compliance Consortium Corporation has labored to retain its Vendor Performance Rating of 100% for Commodity Delivery, Commodity Performance, Service Delivery and Service Performance with the Texas Building and Procurement Commission.
Compliance Consortium Corporation adheres to a strict policy of compliance with the laws and regulations governing its business, not only as a legal obligation, but also because it is the right thing to do. Drug testing regulations were first issued in December 1989. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) now required alcohol and drug testing of all drivers, who have a Commercial Driver License. The U S Department of Transportation (DOT) rules include regulated procedures for urine drug testing and alcohol testing. In 1994 the rules were amended to add breath alcohol testing procedures. In the years following a number of factors including changes in testing technology, and the issuance of a number of written interpretations, required the U S DOT Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance to review and revise the rules. In December of 2000 final rules that incorporated these factors, became the existing drug and alcohol testing regulations. In August of 2001, the FMCSA revised modal specific drug and alcohol testing regulations published in 49 Code of Federal Regulations Part 382 to reflect revisions.
Here at Compliance Consortium Corporation we strive to create an environment in which the application of high legal and ethical standards by all of our employees is the natural and only accepted approach to our business and our daily work. Legal and ethical business practices create a positive, productive work atmosphere in which we can feel proud of ourselves, our work and our company.
As a corporate priority, we expect and work to ensure that each of our employees understands and complies with all company policies. This includes adherence to the company's Code of Conduct, and diligence in seeking to prevent detect and report any unethical or illegal conduct that does not comply with company policy. As a company, we affirm our ongoing commitment to establishing policies and developing effective internal controls that will promote adherence to applicable legal requirements in our standards of business ethics and compliance policies and procedures.
Gary L. Baird, President, CEO
