Starting a drug testing company is easy. There are no federal regulations and most mis-read drug test results are due to an error in reading at the lab level. Liberty Screening sends nearly all positive results to our MRO who reviews the findings at the lab, but for those who rely solely on the drug testing lab, watch out, nobody is looking after those who operate it.
In a recent report by KFDX3, Steve Cooper, Vice President of S&A Services, vowed to bring legislation to the courts to demand regulation. S&A is voluntarily certified by a federal trade organization. “A person can be working at McDonald's or Walmart today and decide to open a drug testing business tomorrow – and there's nothing to stop them,” Cooper said.
