Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you do not have any criminal convictions, but the article 15 for the failed UA, that is not a crime that would be a TWIC automatic disqualifying crime. Under TWIC, you would have to have been convicted of actual possession of the narcotics and then it would only be an "interim disqualifying offense" and you could file an appeal and present proof of why you should not be disqualified from the TWIC and if you have had no subsequent offenses or positive tests (since you have to get tested for DOT and Coast Guard) most times they will issue a waiver on that. However, the Article 15 will not appear on your criminal record for the failed UA and should not be a disqualifier.
