About the MRO

Physician review of drug test chain of custody procedures and test results. Federal guidelines require certification. DISA MRO’s are certified by the American Association of Medical Review Officers (AAMRO).

Duties of an MRO:

  • Review chain of custody forms for accuracy and completeness.
  • Consultation with employee/applicants who test positive to determine if prescription drugs or relevant biomedical factors have caused a laboratory positive test.
  • Consultation with laboratory certifying scientists and Adjudication of Non-negative tests.
