Abstract: Newborn screening programs are state based with variable policies. Guidance
 regarding the retention, storage, and use of portions of newborn screening dried
blood spots that remain after screening (residual specimens) was first published
in 1996. Since then, newborn screening programs have paid increased attention to
specimen storage and usage issues. Standard residual specimen uses include quality
assurance and program evaluation, treatment efficacy, test refinement, and result
verification.

In all cases, privacy and security are primary concerns. In general,two distinct
state practices regarding the storage and use of residual newborn screening specimens
 exist: (1) short-term storage (<3 years), primarily for standard program uses and
(2) long-term storage (>18 years), for standard program uses and possible important
 public health research uses.

Recently, there have been concerns in some consumer communities regarding both the
potential uses of residual specimens and patient (newborn and family) privacy. To
 assist in policy improvements that can protect the individual’s privacy and allow
 for important public health uses of residual newborn screening specimens, the
Secretary of Health and Human Services’ Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders
in Newborns and Children has developed recommendations (with requested action by
the Secretary where applicable). This report presents the Committee’s recommendations
 and reviews the pertinent associated issues.
