Legal, Federal Collection and Transport Process

Drug screen collections are a critical piece of the drug testing process.
Knowing the correct procedure and processes is a necessity for each collection.


Several organizations and individuals can offer help in understanding the regulations. Knowing which type of collection you are going to perform is the first step. For clients PAML provides a chain of custody form (CCF,) collection and transportation container.

Collection sites and clients need to be setup in the PAML system first. Once accounts are setup you will contact the PAML supply department for materials needed.
