Blind Sample Submission

If you are an employer or C/TPA with 2000 or more DOT-covered employees, the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires that your organization verify the accuracy of your drug testing laboratories by conducting annual blind sample submission tests. This requirement is set forth by the DOT to ensure each lab’s testing ability, consistency, and performance in correctly identifying both negative and positive test results; as an employer, however, testing your testing facilities can seem like a time-consuming and burdensome process, especially if you are unfamiliar with the DOT’s specific requirements regarding how many blind tests to submit, how often you may submit them, and how to measure the accuracy of the lab’s results.
