Drug Testing is going Electronic with eCCF

Tweet This

Drug screening employees is going electronic and becoming a streamlined process with electronic chain of custody forms (eCCF). This is an electronic version of a multi-part, paper chain of custody form (CCF). A traditional chain of custody form is a five-part carbon copy form. Using an eCCF creates a simpler drug screening process. For example, if a job applicant is taking a drug screen out of state, the employer can simply e-mail an electronic form to the donor. Unfortunately, a multi-part chain of custody form must be given to the donor in person. Otherwise, the hard copy form is mailed to the applicant.

Fortunately, AMC Drug Testing now has the capability to use electronic forms for Department of Transportation (DOT) companies. In the past, only traditional CCFs have been allowed for federally regulated testing. However, with the eCCF, companies order the drug tests online and create an authorization form. This form is then either emailed or faxed to the candidate. The eCCF is generated in a matter of minutes. As a result, the donor is able to be sent for testing the same day.

The advantages of using eCCF instead of CCF:

  • Efficiency
  • Less paperwork
  • Immediate Testing
  • Current account information
  • Fewer flaws by the collection site
  • Decrease in legibility problems and data entry errors
  • Simple delivery of eCCF copies to employers/MRO
