The Pennsylvania Code website reflects the Pennsylvania Code changes effective through 54 Pa.B. 2336 (April 27, 2024).

58 Pa. Code § 15.5. Testing procedures.

§ 15.5. Testing procedures.

 (a)  A representative of the Commission will inform a boxer that he has been selected for a test and will give him a Urinalysis/Drug Test Consent Form SAC:UDT-1. The boxer shall complete the Form and shall cooperate with the representative in the administration of the test. The boxer shall note a perceived irregularity in the administration of the test on the form.

 (b)  If the boxer is to be given a test, the following procedures shall be observed:

   (1)  The Commission representative will give a sealed urine sample container to the boxer.

   (2)  The boxer shall wash and dry his hands prior to urination.

   (3)  The boxer shall urinate into the container in the presence of the Commission representative, the attending or ringside physician and, at the option of the boxer, an individual chosen by the boxer to accompany him. Observers shall be the same sex as the boxer.

   (4)  Subject to these procedures, the test will be administered in a manner to allow maximum privacy to the boxer.

   (5)  The boxer shall provide at least 60 ml of urine in the sample container, and shall give the container to the Commission representative.

   (6)  In the presence of the boxer and other observers, the Commission representative will divide the sample as evenly as possible into two sample containers.

   (7)  Each sample container will have a label attached which contains the following information: the boxer’s Social Security Number, the Commission representative’s signature and the physician’s signature. One sample will be labeled ‘‘A’’ and the other will be labeled ‘‘B.’’

   (8)  The Commission representative will seal each container with a lock-cap and will attach to each sample container a tag provided by the laboratory designated to conduct the test. The tag will contain the boxer’s Social Security Number.

   (9)  None of the labels or tags attached to any container will identify the boxer by name.

   (10)  The Commission representative will tag and label the sample containers. The sample containers will remain in the custody of the representative until they are delivered to the laboratory or its agent.

   (11)  At the time of delivery, the Commission representative will attach a label to each sample container which will have spaces for the date and time of delivery, the initials of the Commission representative and the initials of the laboratory employe or agent who is picking up the sample. The Commission representative and laboratory employe or agent will complete the label in the presence of each other.

   (12)  The laboratory will perform its initial test on the urine contained in the sample container labeled ‘‘A.’’ If that test reveals the presence of a drug, the laboratory will perform a second screening using the same test used in testing the urine in the sample container labeled ‘‘A,’’ on the urine contained in the sample container labeled ‘‘B.’’

   (13)  If the tests of samples ‘‘A’’ and ‘‘B’’ both reveal the presence of a drug, the laboratory will immediately notify the Executive Director. The Executive Director will then compare the laboratory results with the information supplied by the boxer on the boxer’s Urinalysis/Drug Testing Form SAC:UDT-1 to determine if there has been a confirmed positive test result.
