How to make sure you are taking the right drug test

  1. Must be a DOT | USCG 5 Panel testing for Marijuana, Cocaine, Opiates, Phencyclidine, and Amphetamines. The USCG will not accept any other drug test.
  2. Must be reviewed and signed by a Certified Medical Review Officer (MRO) from either MROCC or AAMRO. Most doctors are not MROs. To verify your MRO is Certified you need to look them up at both MROCC and AAMRO. You want to look in both websites for your MRO. If you find them you are good to go. If not, your Drug Test will not be accepted by the USCG.
  3. Make sure it is a NEGATIVE Result. The USCG will not accept a Negative Dilute or a Positive drug test.
