Current List of Laboratories Which Meet Minimum Standards To Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notifies Federal agencies of the Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF) currently certified to meet the standards of the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs (Mandatory Guidelines). The Mandatory Guidelines were first published in the Federal Register on April 11, 1988 (53 FR 11970), and subsequently revised in the Federal Register on June 9, 1994 (59 FR 29908); September 30, 1997 (62 FR 51118); April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644); November 25, 2008 (73 FR 71858); December 10, 2008 (73 FR 75122); and April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809).
A notice listing all currently certified Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF) is published in the Federal Register during the first week of each month. If any Laboratory/IITF's certification is suspended or revoked, the Laboratory/IITF will be omitted from subsequent lists until such time as it is restored to full certification under the Mandatory Guidelines.
If any Laboratory/IITF has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed at the end and will be omitted from the monthly listing thereafter.
Current List of Laboratories which Meet Minimum Standards to Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies
The Mandatory Guidelines were initially developed in accordance with Executive Order 12564 and section 503 of Public Law 10071. The ``Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs,'' as amended in the revisions listed above, requires strict standards that Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF) must meet in order to conduct drug and specimen validity tests on urine specimens for Federal agencies.
To become certified, an applicant Laboratory/IITF must undergo three rounds of performance testing plus an onsite inspection. To maintain that certification, a Laboratory/IITF must participate in a quarterly performance testing program plus undergo periodic, onsite inspections.
Laboratories and IITFs in the applicant stage of certification do not meet the minimum requirements described in the HHS Mandatory Guidelines. A Laboratory/IITF must have its letter of certification from HHS/SAMHSA (formerly: HHS/NIDA) which attests that it has met minimum standards.
In accordance with the Mandatory Guidelines dated April 30, 2010
(75 FR 22809), the following Laboratories and Instrumented Initial
Testing Facilities (IITF) meet the minimum standards to conduct drug and specimen validity tests on urine specimens:

* The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) voted to end its Laboratory Accreditation Program for Substance Abuse (LAPSA) effective May 12, 1998. Laboratories certified through that program were accredited to conduct forensic urine drug testing as required by U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. As of that date, the certification of those accredited Canadian laboratories will continue under DOT authority. The responsibility for conducting quarterly performance testing plus periodic onsite inspections of those LAPSAaccredited laboratories was transferred to the U.S. HHS, with the HHS' NLCP contractor continuing to have an active role in the performance testing and laboratory inspection processes. Other Canadian laboratories wishing to be considered for the NLCP may apply directly to the NLCP contractor just as U.S. laboratories do.
Upon finding a Canadian laboratory to be qualified, HHS will
recommend that DOT certify the laboratory (Federal Register, July 16,
1996) as meeting the minimum standards of the Mandatory Guidelines
published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809).
After receiving DOT certification, the laboratory will be included in
the monthly list of HHScertified laboratories and participate in the NLCP certification maintenance program.
