Q: Is the company legally obligated to send out the results of testing to the person being tested, whether it is DOT random, for hire etc.?
A: Only if a donor asks for it and it is DOT - The MRO sends everything they have on written request with an address to send the result to. It is suggested that the company gets a written request and verification, when they give a result to a donor and this is kept on file. The company does not give results to donors automatically no matter what the type.
