Electronic Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form (eCCF)

Employers and collectors are now allowed  to use the electronic version of the Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form (eCCF) in the DOT-regulated drug testing program, if the employer’s laboratory has been approved by the Department of Health and Human Services National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP).  
  • The eCCF requires the same collection of information and distribution of information to the relevant parties as the paper CCF requires.
  • Employers and collectors are not required to use an eCCF; they may continue to use the paper CCF, if they prefer.
  • Employers and collectors must not use an eCCF until the employer's laboratory is approved to use an eCCF through the NLCP laboratory inspection process.
When using an eCCF, employers must establish adequate confidentiality and security measures to ensure that confidential employee records are not available to unauthorized persons. This includes protecting the physical security of records, access controls, and computer security measures to safeguard confidential data in electronic form. An employer who uses an eCCF must ensure that the collection site, the primary and split laboratories, and Medical Review Officer (MRO) have compatible systems, and that the employee and any other program participants in the testing process will receive a legible copy of the CCF.
It is important to note that electronic signatures are acceptable on this form only and not throughout the rest of 49 CFR Part 40.
