Quest Diagnostics intends to make DOT & HHS federal eCCF broadly available to its clients in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Traditionally, DOT regulated drug testing has required paper custody and control forms for drug testing. After a long wait, Quest Diagnostics is now certified to utilize eCCF for all urine workplace drug tests including DOT regulated employers. Four of Quest's drug testing laboratories have successfully completed the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) inspection and certification process, which involves demonstrating required proficiency in areas such as data security and confidentiality. The approved labs are located in Lenexa, KS; Tucker, GA; West Hills, CA; and West Norriton, PA.
Quest Diagnostics has provided eCCF to private, non-DOT regulated employers across the country for almost a decade. “Our eCCF certification positions us to comply with regulated drug testing requirements for workers in safety-sensitive roles, particularly workforces mandated by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), to greatly improve the efficiency and quality of documentation for workplace drug testing,” said Bob McCormick, Vice President, Quest Diagnostics Employer Solutions. “For years, we’ve successfully utilized eCCF to provide testing for millions of non-regulated specimens and we look forward to extending this capability to support federal drug-free workplace programs.”
