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.

YES - All drug testing policies have a testing “panel.” Testing panels consist of substances and level thresholds (limit of detection). DISA offers policies with customized panels, in addition to policies that require standard/regulated panels. (Please note, all DOT and some safety-sensitive, non-DOT drug testing programs have mandatory testing panels)

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).

Copies of test results may be obtained through several departments, depending on the results. For positive test results, please contact DISA’s Return-To-Duty department, or contact your MRO. For negative test results, please contact your company’s HR department.
