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); 
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 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    If any laboratory or IITF has withdrawn from the HHS National 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://www.samhsa.gov/workplace.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Giselle Hersh, Division of 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:

    *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 on-site inspections of those LAPSA-accredited 
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

NLCP certification maintenance program.
