MRO Certified Drug Screening – Avoid costly mistakes that may arise due to botched tests

The MRO is a key person in the drug testing process. He or she ensures that the drug tests are administered properly, that the correct drug panel was used, and that all the correct procedures were followed. Additionally, a positive drug test calls for an MRO intervention to work with the donor to establish if the positive result was caused by a valid prescription or medical treatment. If the donor cannot be contacted, the MRO will report a non-contact positive.

Nothing is assumed in the drug testing process.

 

Our team of qualified Medical Review Officers (MROs) and Assistant Medical Review Officers (AMROs) ensure that drug and alcohol screening are conducted based on internationally recognized protocols under strict compliance to national regulations and company policies.

 

Importance of an MRO

An MRO Confirms the Validity and Accuracy of the Procedures on the Employer's Behalf

To guarantee that the right actions are made in response to a positive test result, having extensive knowledge in the field of substance use is necessary. An MRO has the knowledge as well as the experience to determine whether the process done is valid or not. Moreover, an MRO can oversee the testing procedure to make sure that the right methods and actions are taken in response to non-negative test results.

They Clarify Positive Test Results

Handling interviews with employees who test positive can be a sensitive issue. Furthermore, judgment can be inaccurate if one is not equipped with the proper information. An MRO can ease this process by conducting confidential interviews by themselves and then providing you as employers with accurate feedback based on their evaluation — negative if the employee provides a valid explanation with proof, or positive if the employee cannot provide one.

An MRO Protects the Employer and Employees

MROs relieve the employer of the heavy responsibility of making decisions based on the employee's claims. Additionally, an MRO can preserve the confidentiality of the testing results to protect the employees' integrity.
