Current List of Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing 
Facilities 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 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 
on 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    If any Laboratory/IITF has withdrawn from the HHS National 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.
    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 initially 
developed in accordance with Executive Order 12564 and section 503 of 
Public Law 100-71. 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 on-site inspection. To 
maintain that certification, a Laboratory/IITF must participate in a 
quarterly performance testing program plus undergo periodic, on-site 
inspections.
    Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF) in 
the applicant stage of certification are not to be considered as 
meeting 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 November 25, 2008 
(73 FR 71858), the following Laboratories and Instrumented Initial 
Testing Facilities (IITF) meet the minimum standards to conduct drug 
and specimen validity tests on urine specimens:
