What is an electronic chain of custody?

An electronic Custody and Control Form, also known as an eCCF, is an electronic version of the traditional document used for drug test ordering, specimen collection processing, and chain of custody documentation for workplace drug testing. ECCFs offer additional benefits, such as speeding up turnaround times by up to 25% and preventing common user errors associated with paper forms.

The employer’s responsibility is to explain that there is no exception (under DOT regulations) for the use of any product that presents as THC metabolites and exceeds set thresholds on a DOT drug screen. If it is non-DOT, they should refer to the company policy. If the policy accepts CBD oil, then that should be communicated.

Can I hire someone with an invalid result?

An invalid test result is acceptable except in the following cases:

  • The employer needs a negative test result (DOT and Consortium Pre-Employment, Return-to-Duty)
  • The MRO has instructed a recollection and/or medical evaluation

Return-to-Duty and SAP referrals are relevant to non-negative results so, if an employee is restricted due to an invalid test result that employee should not be subject to an RTD program (unless the client’s corporate policy indicates otherwise).
