3. Maintain offender records in a manner that complies with federal confidentiality guidelines. All offender files, payment receipts, and other identifying information shall be located in locked filing cabinets if unattended by a technician. Electronic storage of offender files shall be encrypted and secured to prevent third party access;

4. Require and enforce maintenance of a drug-free workplace and have posted in a conspicuous place available to employees and applicants for employment a statement notifying employees that the manufacture, sale, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance or marijuana is prohibited in the service provider's workplace. The notice shall specify the actions that may be taken against employees for violations of the policy;

5. Notify offenders of the address and closure date of any remote alcohol service facility and provide the address of an alternate remote alcohol monitoring service facility within 15 days of the closure date, if applicable;

7. Ensure that the locations where remote alcohol monitoring services are performed are tidy and pose no hazards to public safety; and
