Forensic Use Only (FUO) devices are exclusive to law enforcement agencies and organizations associated with them, such as court systems, police departments, correction centers, juvenile detention centers, prisons, and labs performing forensic testing. These devices are not suitable for use in other settings, like clinical diagnosis or the workplace.
To acquire these special drug testing devices, individuals or organizations must submit necessary paperwork and receive clearance from the manufacturer. This is due to the fact that these devices are not FDA 510k cleared and are not intended for employment screening, pain management screening, or other purposes. They are only meant for drug screening use by law enforcement, prisons, military, or other relevant government agencies.
At DrugTestKitUSA, we take our responsibility to ensure the appropriate use of our products very seriously. As such, it is necessary for us to require Forensic Use Only paperwork from our customers before they can purchase our FUO drug test kits and/or substance identification products. We understand that this may cause a delay in the ordering process, but it is necessary to ensure the safety and legality of our products.
Therefore, we kindly ask that our customers fill out the necessary paperwork and send it back to us as soon as possible, so that we can determine their eligibility to purchase the product. We will then send the paperwork to the manufacturer to verify eligibility and ensure that the product is being used for its intended purpose.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter, and we assure you that we will do everything in our power to expedite the process and get your order to you as quickly as possible.
