Notice Regarding Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP): Priorities for NREPP Reviews
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is committed to preventing the onset and reducing the progression of mental illness, substance abuse, and substance-related problems among all individuals, including youth. As part of this effort, SAMHSA has expanded and refined the agency's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). Two previous notices announcing these changes have been published in the Federal Register (70 FR 165, Aug. 26, 2005, 50381-50390; 71 FR 49, Mar. 14, 2006, 13133-13155). This notice explains how SAMHSA and its three Centers will prioritize interventions submitted for NREPP reviews during Fiscal Year 2007 and provides guidance on the submission process. This information can be helpful to individuals and organizations seeking to have an intervention reviewed and listed on the new NREPP Web site. For Further Information Contact: Kevin D. Hennessy, Ph.D., Science to Service Coordinator/SAMHSA, 1 Choke Cherry Road, Room 8-1017, Rockville, MD 20857, (240) 276-2234.
Current List of Laboratories Which Meet Minimum Standards To Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies
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 If any laboratory has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed at the end, and will be omitted from the monthly listing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.
