Research output: Other contribution


These guidelines for Legally Defensible Workplace Drug Testing have been prepared and updated by the European Workplace Drug Testing Society (EWDTS)1. The European Guidelines are designed to establish best practice procedures whilst allowing individual countries to operate within the requirements of national customs and legislation. The EWDTS recommends that all European laboratories that undertake legally defensible workplace drug testing should use these guidelines as a template for accreditation.

These guidelines are relevant to laboratory-based testing only. The EWDTS is aware that there are point of collection testing (POCT) devices available. If organizations wish to use POCT devices it is recommended that POCT devices used should come with national or international approvals.

These guidelines follow current best practices and are constantly under review.
