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 HHScertified 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 If any laboratory or IITF has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:23 Dec 03, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 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 (73 FR 71858), the following HHScertified laboratories and IITFs meet the minimum standards to conduct drug and specimen validity tests on urine specimens: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Current List of HHS-Certified Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities Which Meet Minimum Standards To Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies HHS-Certified Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities Gamma-Dynacare Medical Laboratories, 6628 50th Street NW., Edmonton, AB Canada T6B 2N7, 780–784–1190 PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total annual burden hours 1 1 BILLING CODE 4140–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Average burden per response (in hours) 100 900 at the end and will be omitted from the monthly listing thereafter.

Current List of HHS-Certified 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);

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 http://beta.samhsa.gov/workplace.

Programs, SAMHSA/CSAP, Room 7-1051, One Choke Cherry Road, 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 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 
(73 FR 71858), the following HHS-certified laboratories and IITFs meet 
the minimum standards to conduct drug and specimen validity tests on 
urine specimens:
