Victoria police replace drug testing agency

According to the Age1 Victoria Police have recently “dumped” their current drug testing agency due to their failure to follow current drug testing guidelines. These failures resulted in the overturning of a number of disciplinary cases, most recently an officer who had a positive result for methamphetamine in a hair test sample2. The Police Registration and Services Board found there was “substantial non-compliance with the regulations” and that “non-compliance with the legislatively prescribed requirements has serious consequences for the integrity of the process”.  As a result, the officer was reinstated.


This case highlights the need for an organisation to have confidence that their testing agency is fully compliant with the current guidelines and regulations.


DASA is externally audited and certified for its compliance to AS4760 and ISO9001.
