Although the new 2020 Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form (CCF) contains a checkbox for “ORAL FLUID”, you may NOT begin collecting oral fluid specimens from donors until the Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance develops the mandatory guidelines for oral fluid testing and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) determine the requirements for saliva testing devices and laboratory protocols.
After the above steps are completed, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) must approve the work done in this area by the SAMHSA and the HHS. After all this happens, the DOT needs to establish the new Guidelines for oral fluid specimen collection.
Once the Department of Transportation Rules are in place regarding Oral Fluid Collections (aka Saliva drug testing), we will be offering the new training course and certification for Oral Fluid Specimen Collectors. Please visit this webpage or our website frequently for updates.
In the meantime, please keep your training current with our (urine) DOT Specimen Collector Training and Certification courses, which are fully online and by webcam for everyone’s safety.
