Completing Step 2 of the Federal Drug Testing CCF: Recording Urine Specimen Temperature

One of the first things the collector must do is to check the temperature of the specimen. This must be done within four minutes after the donor gives the specimen to the collector. It is important to remember to document the observation on the CCF. If the temperature is within 90 -100°F. check “Yes.” If the temperature is less than 90°F or greater than 100°F, check “No” and make any appropriate notations in the Remarks section. A specimen with an out-of-range temperature would trigger an observed collection. More about that later.
Drug screen results will not be released if there is a failure to document the temperature check. However, failure to document the temperature check is a correctable flaw using a Memorandum for Record (MOR).
