A. A testing facility shall report single-use test results that meet the standard to be sent to the laboratory for confirmation testing to an employer's review officer, or a designee of the employer's review officer, as soon as the results for the single-use test become available or the next working day. The final conclusion of the testing, which shall include the results of the single-use tests, confirmatory tests, or quality control data, shall be reviewed and the test certified as an accurate report by the responsible individual. The report shall identify the drugs and metabolites tested for, whether positive or negative, and the cutoff for each, the specimen number assigned by the employer, and the testing facility specimen identification number.
B. The drug screen testing facility shall report as negative all specimens which are negative on the single-use test or negative on the confirmatory test. Only specimens confirmed positive shall be reported as positive for a specific drug.
C. The review officer may request from the certified laboratory, and the certified laboratory shall provide, quantitation of test results. The review officer shall not disclose quantitation of test results to the employer but shall report only whether the test was positive or negative.
D. The drug screen testing facility may transmit results to the review officer by electronic means, including teleprinters, facsimile, or computer, in a manner designed to ensure confidentiality of the information. Results shall not be provided verbally by telephone. The drug screen testing facility shall ensure the security of the data transmission and limit access to any data transmission, storage, and retrieval system.
