What is IFDAT?

The International Forum for Drug and Alcohol Testing (IFDAT) is a non-profit organisation, registered as a 501c(3) non-profit organization in the United States of America (USA).

We are dedicated to the advancement of global employee drug and alcohol testing systems and processes. In keeping with the international platform, the appointed Board Members and representatives of IFDAT cover a global reach.

What is an IFDAT conference?

The “Annual” IFDAT Conference provides a platform for experts from a wide variety of disciplines associated with the drug and alcohol industries to meet and discuss a range of topics focused on current and future developments relevant to employee testing globally.

At these conferences employers, industry providers and other interested parties discuss best practices, new developments, updates in policies and technology, efficiency improvements and other topics relevant to enhancing employee drug and alcohol testing.

Why should YOU attend?

The international employee screening market is growing rapidly as more and more businesses expand their operations globally. As the need to screen employees on an international basis grows, so does the need to improve and identify opportunities for this complicated process.

In addition to World class speakers and topics covered, these conferences provide an excellent networking opportunity to share knowledge, form global relationships, evaluate new methods and shape the direction of best practice employee drug and alcohol testing globally. Conferences are actively supported and sponsored by leading Companies from a range of associated industry sectors.
