The 2020 Federal Drug Testing Custody and Control Form (CCF) was revised and recently approved by the Office of Management and Budget on August 17, 2020.

You can view this new form here under this link: https://www.samhsa.gov/sites/default/files/workplace/2020-fed-ccf-proof.pdf

Changes were done to advance the Custody and control form to make way for oral fluid testing for all DOT drivers. We are waiting now to hopefully hear something soon about when these changes will take effect.

Here are the changes for the revised CCF:

On all Copies, 1-5, Step 1:  “CDL State and No.” Added to donor identification (used for FMCSA only);

On all Copies, 1-5, Step 1:  the field of “Other” (i.e., e-mail address) was added to the Collector Contact Info area;

On Copy 1 only, Step 5a: They have removed the analyte names and checkboxes; moved the results checkboxes; and  they have added a line for the certifying scientist to record the positive analyte(s) and concentration(s) if a positive result is recorded;

On Copies 2-5 only, Step 5:  Added a line for the donor to print their e-mail address;

On Copy 5:  all instructions for completing the CCF have been removed from the back of the form. Instructions for completing the CCF are now posted on the SAMHSA and ODAPC Websites. https://www.samhsa.gov/workplace/drug-testing  and ODAPC https://www.transportation.gov/odapc/documents

DOT-regulated employers and their service agents (collectors, laboratories, Medical Review Officers (MRO)) are authorized to use the revised CCF beginning September 1, 2020 but laboratories have not yet made these available yet as they would like the old ones used first before the new CCF starts being used.

You may choose to use, the old CCF until August 30, 2021.  When using the old CCF between September 1, 2020, and August 30, 2021, a memorandum for the record (MFR) is not required. NOTE: After August 30, 2021, you are required to use the revised CCF. If you use the old CCF after August 30, 2021, you must complete a MFR per 49 CFR § 40.205(b)(2).
