The DTC’s qualified staff provide a professional and discrete drug testing service for job applicants, employees and contractors within the construction, manufacturing and corporate sectors.

Our directors & staff experience within trade and professional markets gives us a broad understanding of New Zealand businesses and how best to provide drug testing expertise to a variety of sectors.

Screening for drugs and alcohol, we use approved urine testing devices verified to AS/NZS4308:2008 Standard, hair follicle testing and breath/alcohol testing devices.
We screen for classes and types of drugs commonly tested for in a standard workplace and can provide tailored drug screen testing for specific requirements. More information on drugs tested for is available here. 


All donors will be required to sign a consent form and provide photographic identification to the Collector at the time of the test. If photographic identification is not available at the time of the test a supervisor may confirm identification or the donor will be photographed by the The DTC staff at the time of the test.

Results will be immediately available after the tests to the donor and the written result of the tests will be provided to the authorised representative onsite.

Regular testing is very important in maintaining a safer drug free workplace. Our team is able to conveniently provide on site testing to efficiently reduce downtime. Alternatively if more discretion is required we have off site testing services.

Christchurch Business

The Drug Testing Company was engaged to carry out drug and alcohol testing on all our employees (approximately 45) within 2 days. Due to the fact that we have a lot of truck drivers we wanted as little amount of disruption to their routine as possible so The DTC agreed to commence the testing at 6am so the drivers could be done first to allow them to carry on with their day as normal. There were also some employees who were going to be unavailable on testing day and The DTC was happy to do their test at a time that was suitable to them, they was even prepared to travel to the work site so there was a minimum amount of downtime.


What should have taken more than one day to complete The DTC did in one day – we were most impressed with their efficiency and also their great attitude towards all our employees. They definitely made what can sometimes be an unpleasant task so much more bearable.


Our Company policy is to test all our employees every six months, and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in getting The DTC back in six month’s time.


Thank you so much.
