10/25/2011 - D.O.T. Collection Issues
The Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance (ODAPC) has asked SAPAA to bring the following concerns to your immediate attention:
· Illegible Custody and Control Forms (CCFs) continue to be a problem in regulated drug and alcohol testing collections. Collectors must make certain that the CCFs are legible.
· Collectors are not forwarding CCFs as required by regulation, including Copy 2 of the CCF. Collectors must ensure that they forward CCFs in compliance with 49 CFR Part 40, which means – within 24 hours or the next business day.
· Collectors are having the donor initial the specimen bottle labels while the labels are on the CCF. This is not permitted by 49 CFR Part 40. The information on the bottle labels must be completed only after each label is affixed to each bottle.
· When a donor leaves a collection site before the collection is completed, the collector often does not inform the donor that failing to remain at the collection site is a refusal to test.
Please click on the links for a copy of the most current 49 CFR Part 40, the October 2010 Urine Specimen Collection Guidelines, and a copy of the current Custody and Control Form.
