The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has announced the updated and revised Federal Custody and Control for DOT drug testing. The new form is available now and must be used by August 30, 2021. This is a required component of the DOT drug testing program.
Effective August 30, 2021 the new DOT CCF form must be used. When the old Federal CCF form is utilized after August 30, 2021 a memorandum for record (MFR), or an affidavit will be required by laboratories before DOT urine specimens are tested. Using the old form will cause affidavits, delays, upset customers and bad customer service.
