  • Description:
    Public health laboratory directors and managers have expressed interest in understanding legal considerations relevant to sharing testing services. This report is a resource for public health laboratory directors and their legal counsel as they explore potential legal issues related to sharing testing services with other jurisdictions. As used in this report, the term “law” refers primarily to statutes, regulations, and ordinances. Legal considerations include both legal provisions that support shared testing services and those that may prohibit shared testing services.

    This report offers a brief overview of some of the generally relevant federal and state legal considerations. It does not attempt to create a comprehensive review and should be considered a starting point for more detailed analysis by interested laboratory directors and their legal counsel.

    This report was prepared by the Public Health Law Program, part of the Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, in collaboration with the Laboratory Science, Policy and Practice Program Office, part of the Office of Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services at CDC. It is important to note that this report does not represent the official views of CDC. It does not constitute legal advice nor is it intended to support or oppose any proposed or pending federal, state, or other law. In all cases, public health laboratory directors should consult with their legal counsel for official legal advice.
