Current List of Laboratories Which Meet Minimum Standards To 
Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies

AGENCY: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notifies 
Federal agencies of the laboratories currently certified to meet the 
standards of Subpart C 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), on September 30, 1997 (62 FR 51118), and on 
April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644).
    A notice listing all currently certified laboratories is published 
in the Federal Register during the first week of each month. If any 
laboratory's certification is suspended or revoked, the laboratory will 
be omitted from subsequent lists until such time as it is restored to 
full certification under the Mandatory Guidelines.
    If any laboratory has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory 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.
    This notice is also available on the Internet at http://
www.workplace.samhsa.gov and http://www.drugfreeworkplace.gov.

Rockville, Maryland 20857; 240-276-2600 (voice), 240-276-2610 (fax).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Mandatory Guidelines were developed in 
accordance with Executive Order 12564 and section 503 of Public Law 
100-71. Subpart C of the Mandatory Guidelines, ``Certification of 
Laboratories Engaged in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies,'' sets 
strict standards that laboratories must meet in order to conduct drug 
and specimen validity tests on urine specimens for Federal agencies. To 
become certified, an applicant laboratory must undergo three rounds of 
performance testing plus an on-site inspection. To maintain that 
certification, a laboratory must participate in a quarterly performance 
testing program plus undergo periodic, on-site inspections.
    Laboratories which claim to be in the applicant stage of 
certification are not to be considered as meeting the minimum 
requirements described in the HHS Mandatory Guidelines. A laboratory 
must have its letter of certification from HHS/SAMHSA (formerly: HHS/
NIDA) which attests that it has met minimum standards.
    In accordance with Subpart C of the Mandatory Guidelines dated 
April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644), the following laboratories 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
