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

The first thing the collector must do after receiving the specimen from the donor is to check the temperature. Be sure to document your observations on the control form. If the temperature is within 90-100°F, check "Yes". If the temperature is less that 90°F or greater than 100°F, check "No" and document findings in the "Remarks" section of the Custody and Control Form. A specimen with an out-of-range temperature would trigger an observed collection. More about that later.
