           DISCREPANCY CODES:
             WHAT ARE THEY?
 Codes are used by all branch services to identify
  specific discrepancy.
 The codes are controlled by DoD and determined by
  each branch service to be a “Fatal” or “Tested”..
 FATAL code: Non Testable
 TESTED code: Testable, but discrepant.
 Each code has its own unique identifier:
- Bottle discrepancies begin with “B”
- Form discrepancies begin with “F” or “G”
- Label discrepancies begin with “L”
- Packaging discrepancies begin with “P”
- Specimen discrepancy begin with “S” (internal)
                                                      2
      MOST COMMON FATAL CODES

 BC – Bottle leaked in shipment, quantity not sufficient
  to test
 BU – Bottle empty
 BY – Bottle discrepancy – NOT TESTED
 GG – Form listed specimen, no bottle received
 LY – Label discrepancy – NOT TESTED (missing)
 PY – Package discrepancy – NOT TESTED
  (Damaged)
 SA – Specimen appears to be adulterated – NOT

   FR – Form on two pieces of paper – no linking
    identifiers
                                                           4

   PD – Package: Missing signature/date
   PY – Package: Tested
   SB – Specimen appears to be adulterated*
   SE – Specimen volume < 30 mL
                                                              5
    REDUCING DISCREPANCIES
 Make sure you are following the procedures
  outlined in OPNAVINST 5350.4D, ENCL 2,
  Appendix B. They are also available on the
  NADAP website, NDSP page, titled
  Packaging and Shipping information.
 Double check everything prior to sealing up
  the samples. It’s a good idea to use a second
  set of eyes in this process.
 If you don’t have certain packing or
  packaging material and want to use
  something different, contact the office of
  NADAP or servicing lab for guidance.            6
        REDUCING DISCREPANCIES

 Make sure you manage your discrepancies like you
  would a positive result. Don’t ignore them, act on
  them.
 Conduct training with assistant UPCs.
 Contact your ADCO (Alcohol and Drug Control
  Officer) or NADAP if you need assistance.
