What is a SAMHSA Certified Lab?
SAMHSA is the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. They are an agency of The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) that regulates and inspects federally accredited drug-testing laboratories. A SAMHSA Certified Lab is any United States laboratory certified by DHHS under the National Laboratory Certification Program that meets the minimum standards of Subpart C of the HHS Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs; or, in the case of foreign laboratories, a laboratory approved for participation by DOT under this part.
