“You had to overnight or snail mail to the driver the paper CCF's," said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. "With the online system, you will be able to create an electronic CCF and email it to him. Very simple.”

Corra Group is preparing to implement the new electronic Chain of Custody Form for its trucking and transportation drivers. The new CCF will allow trucking companies to dispense with the more traditional five-part paper custody and control forms that have been the standard and streamline operations with an online ordering system for DOT mandated drug tests.

As evidenced on its website, The Department of Transportation, last year, published a Final Rule on April 13, 2015 allowing employers, collectors, laboratories and Medical Review Officers (MROs) to use electronic Custody and Control Forms for their drug testing,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. This is a major breakthrough as the electronic CCF collects and transmits the same employer, donor, collector, MRO and specimen information as the traditional paper forms. The eCCF’s use an electronic, online process that simplifies the procedure.

“In the past, getting the driver a paper Custody and Control Form could be difficult if the driver was on the road or working remotely,” said Basichis. “You had to overnight or snail mail, something costly and deliberate to assure he was DOT compliant went he went in for his drug test. With the online system, you will be able create an electronic CCF and email it to him. Very simple.”

Basichis noted that Corra Group is eager to offer the electronic DOT drug testing system as soon as it comes online. He said he was told by Corra Group’s partners at Quest Diagnostics that implementation could be expected shortly and that the final phase was assuring that the drug collection sites could accommodate the eCFF form.

“For non-DOT related drug testing, the electronic online form has become the industry standard,” said Basichis. "The eCCF will eliminate such common confusion as deciphering a driver’s name from the paper forms. The entire process will be far more efficient."

“Our DOT related trucking clients will be delighted when this finally gets underway. Our clients realize that Corra Group offers a full package of trucking and transportation background checks, including Motor Vehicle Driving Records. This is one giant step in the right direction."

Basichis noted that to assure better service to its current and future trucking and transportation clients, Corra Group accepts for its DOT Drug Testing Random Management Program only companies with no fewer than thirty-five drivers.

“While we will provide criminal background checks and MVR’s to smaller transportation companies, we find with clients employing thirty-five drivers or more, we find they are at better addressing and managing the DOT compliance mandates,” said Basichis. “This make for far more productive partnerships.
