FRA is amending appendix B to part 219 to reflect changes to the corporate name, address, and telephone numbers of the laboratory designated to conduct post-accident toxicological testing. In 1995, FRA awarded a contract to Northwest Toxicology, Inc. to conduct post-accident toxicological testing. The laboratory has since changed its corporate name twice; in 1998, when Northwest Toxicology, Inc. changed its corporate name to NWT Inc.; and in 2003, when LabOne acquired a division of NWT Inc. and changed the laboratory's name to Northwest Toxicology, a LabOne Company. FRA has modified its post-accident testing contract to recognize the laboratory's name change. Northwest Toxicology, a LabOne Company, recently moved to a new location. For mailing purposes, railroads should ship post-accident toxicological testing specimens to the following address and use the telephone numbers below: Northwest Toxicology/LabOne, Hayes Building, Suite #C, 2282 South Presidents Drive, West Valley City, UT 84120, Telephone: (800) 322-3361 or (801) 293-2300 (Day), (801) 244-5599 (Night/Weekend).Start List of Subjects
