How do I support the origin of my test sample should I wish to provide potential forensic evidence (certified test report) submittable to a court of law ?
Why should I submit a completed Chain of Custody form?
Chain of Custody defined is the unbroken trail of accountability that ensures the physical security of samples, data, pictures, and records that may have potential as forensic legal evidence.
Be sure to have at least one witness, two if you prefer, attest to the date and time of your sample collection by signing off on the CC form below.
We recommend that you take at least one digital time/date stamp picture while the sample collection is in progress clearly showing the face of the test sample donor and/or submitter. Do not submit evidence pictures related to urine samples which include the genitals in an picture but submitting a picture depicting the genital proximity as representative of a urine sample collection will suffice.
The Chain of Custody form requests the name of a witness who will provide their name, date, and time on you test sample seal. You should also provide a date/time stamped picture showing your face as the test sample donor for identity purposes. Submitting a completed Chain of Custody form is a method of establishing a paper trail of potential forensic evidence should you choose to move forward with a civil or criminal suit against a perpetrator. This form is not mandatory although highly recommended and does not increase your testing fee but is essential in supporting the origin of your test sample, the choice is yours.

Any decision to move forward with a legal suite is your decision alone.
