If the positive result were explained to the satisfaction of the agency's medical review officer, who shall be a licensed physician, the positive results are not required to be reported.
(b) Each agency, if it conducts a drug screen for in-service officers, shall report in writing positive results or refusals to submit to an in-service drug screening to the Criminal Justice Standards Division within 30 days of the positive result or refusal, unless the positive result has been explained to the satisfaction of the agency's medical review officer to the extent the drug screen conducted conforms to the specifications of 12 NCAC 09B .0101(5)(a), (b), (c), (d), and (f).
(c) For reporting purposes, a result is considered "positive" only in those cases where the drug screen reveals the presence of an illegal drug at a level equal to or greater than the threshold value as established by the Department of Health and Human Services for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs and incorporated by reference in 12 NCAC 09B .0101(5)(d).
(d) All written reports required to be submitted to the Criminal Justice Standards Division by this Rule shall contain the individual's name, date of birth, either the date the test was administered or the date of the refusal, and a copy of the drug screen panel with the results of the medical officer review.
