eccfThe electronic Custody and Control Form, or eCCF, is a digital version of the traditional, five-part, paper Custody and Control Form used for drug test ordering, specimen collection processing and specimen chain of custody documentation. Some of the many benefits of eCCF include:

  • Fewer data entry and legibility issues from handwritten paper forms
  • Reduced collection site flaws
  • Less paperwork to manage
  • Accurate data from the Federal eCCF immediately replaces outdated account and Medical Review Officer (MRO) demographics
  • Streamlined delivery of Federal eCCF copies to employers and MROs
  • Improved overall efficiency

Employers can only begin using Federal eCCF once their laboratory and the eCCF system used by the collection sites have been approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP).

Quest Diagnostics is nearing final approval. Our Lenexa, KS laboratory inspection has been completed by the NLCP. In addition, formal inspections for our laboratories in Tucker, GA; West Hills, CA and West Norriton, PA are also scheduled and being conducted. Once inspections are complete, we will work to remediate any changes required in the inspection report. We have already trained our collectors and outfitted more than 1,300 Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Centers (PSCs) with bar code scanners, signature pads and the technology required to be eCCF-enabled for regulated testing.

Once we are authorized to begin Federal collections using the eCCF, we will communicate our approval status. To receive alerts on our approval status for the Federal eCCF, as well as drug testing news and information, continue to read our blog and follow us on LinkedIn and Facebook.
