- No. An MRO must not report tests results until and unless he or she has received all required information from the collection site and laboratory.
- This means the MRO must have Copy 2 or a legible copy of Copy 2 (or any legible copy of a CCF page signed by the employee) and must have the drug test result (sent in the appropriate manners for negatives and non-negatives) from the laboratory.
- An MRO sending “in-progress” negative or non-negative results will be considered to be in violation of Part 40.
