Electronic Custody Control Forms (ECCF)


An eCCF is an electronic version of the traditional, five-part paper Custody and Control Form (CCF) – the document used for drug test ordering, specimen collection processing, and chain of custody documentation for workplace drug testing.

The eCCF functions the same way as a manual form but offers additional benefits to help improve the Chain of Custody process. The biggest difference: eCCFs speed up turnaround times by up to 25% and prevent common user errors associated with paper forms.


DISA’s collection site network has more than 1,900 eCCF capable collection facilities, and more than 95% of DISA’s DOT & Non-DOT customers have access to eCCF capable facilities near them. With eCCF, instead of manually filling out forms, users utilize a web-based, wizard-driven, walk-through guide to complete the required steps. As a result, collector and provider errors can be drastically reduced. This process also ensures best practices for each form, as well as a more secure distribution. In fact, our users have seen up to 25% improvement in turnaround times when utilizing eCCFs.

DISA utilizes FormFox to simplify the collection process, reduce paperwork, eliminate errors, and standardize forms.

Benefits of Utilizing eCCF Include:

  • Storage of eCCFs is automated, flexible, secure, and accessible
  • A higher quality process increases accuracy and reduces cost
  • A significant decrease in affidavits and errors
  • Improved result turnaround time as a result of electronic data availability
  • eCCFs eliminate the need for printing and shipping paper CCFs
  • Labs receive pre-accessioned data that expedites testing
  • Improved quality and accuracy
  • eCCFs are not subject to damage or harm
  • Don’t have to chase chains; electronically transmitted
