While the Legislature considers eliminating the requirement that labs obtain state-issued licenses or registrations and receive oversight from Laboratory Services, Laboratory Services should begin taking action to address its deficiencies by developing a corrective action plan by December 31, 2015. The corrective action plan should address its plans for implementing the recommendations from our 2008 audit and from this follow-up audit. For each item in its corrective action plan, Laboratory Services should identify the individuals responsible for ensuring it takes the corrective action, the resources it needs to carry out the corrective action, and the time frame in which it expects to successfully complete the corrective action.
CDPH developed and submitted Corrective Action Plan by the due date of December 31, 2015
Laboratory Field Services is currently in the process of developing the corrective action plan and will complete the plan by the due date of December 31st, 2015.
