SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Mandatory Guidelines were initially developed in accordance with Executive Order 12564 and section 503 of Pub. L. 100–71. The ‘‘Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs,’’ as amended in the revisions listed above, requires strict standards that laboratories and IITFs must meet in order to conduct drug and specimen validity tests on urine specimens for federal agencies. To become certified, an applicant laboratory or IITF must undergo three rounds of performance testing plus an on-site inspection. To maintain that certification, a laboratory or IITF must participate in a quarterly performance testing program plus undergo periodic, on-site inspections. Laboratories and IITFs in the applicant stage of certification are not to be considered as meeting the minimum requirements described in the HHS Mandatory Guidelines. A HHS-certified laboratory or IITF must have its letter of certification from HHS/SAMHSA (formerly: HHS/NIDA), which attests that it has met minimum standards.

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

on April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809).
    A notice listing all currently HHS-certified laboratories and IITFs 
is published in the Federal Register during the first week of each 
month. If any laboratory or IITF certification is suspended or revoked, 
the laboratory or IITF will be omitted from subsequent lists until such 
time as it is restored to full certification under the Mandatory 
Guidelines.
    If any laboratory or IITF has withdrawn from the HHS National 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 https://www.workplace.samhsa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Mandatory Guidelines were initially 
developed in accordance with Executive Order 12564 and section 503 of 
Pub. L. 100-71. The ``Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug 
Testing Programs,'' as amended in the revisions listed above, requires 
strict standards that laboratories and IITFs must meet in order to 
conduct drug and specimen validity tests on urine specimens for federal 
agencies.
    To become certified, an applicant laboratory or IITF must undergo 
three rounds of performance testing plus an on-site inspection. To 
maintain that certification, a laboratory or IITF must participate in a 
quarterly performance testing program plus undergo periodic, on-site 
inspections.
    Laboratories and IITFs in the applicant stage of certification are 
not to be considered as meeting the minimum requirements described in 
the HHS Mandatory Guidelines. A HHS-certified laboratory or 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
