HHS-certified laboratories: Please forward this email and attachments to Medical Review Officers (MROs), collection sites, clients, and other service providers for federal workplace drug testing programs.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved the 2014 Federal Custody and Control Form (CCF). The 2014 Federal CCF may be used as a paper form or electronic form (Federal eCCF). The effective date of the Federal CCF is May 31, 2014, and the expiration date is May 31, 2017.
Before a Federal eCCF can be used for regulated specimens, an HHS-certified test facility must submit a detailed plan and proposed standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the eCCF system to the NLCP for review and approval, and undergo an onsite inspection. Additional information on this process is attached.
The Division of Workplace Programs (DWP), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), has released documents associated with the 2014 Federal CCF, effective May 31, 2014.
These documents include the 2014 Federal Custody and Control Form (CCF), “Guidance for Using the 2014 Federal Custody and Control Form (CCF),” the HHS Medical Review Officer Manual, and the HHS Urine Specimen Collection Handbook.
The documents will be posted on the DWP/SAMHSA Drug Testing website. The website (currently under construction) is available at: beta.samhsa.gov/workplace.
