Federal Custody and Control Form (CCF) Expiration Date Extended through August 2021
The currently-used United States Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal chain of custody form for recording specimen collection and drug testing of federally-regulated employees was due to expire at the end of August 2020. However, HHS/SAMHSA has extended the expiration date and is allowing continued use of the current CCF through August 31, 2021.
What Specimen Collectors Need to Know: You may continue to use the current Custody and Control Form (CCF) with no changes [i.e. There is no need to fill out a Memorandum for Record].
It is anticipated that a revised CCF will be rolled out to the industry within this next year, since oral fluid specimen testing is on the horizon, but as of right now ONLY urine specimens are allowed for DOT drug testing. We will share more information on the potential approval of oral fluids/saliva drug testing for DOT drug tests in the future as more information becomes available.
