Application and License Requirements
The Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel exists to protect the public health, safety and welfare of the people of the state of Florida from the hazards of improper performance by clinical laboratory personnel. Clinical laboratories provide essential services to practitioners of the healing arts by furnishing vital information that is essential to a determination of the nature, cause and extent of the condition involved. Unreliable and inaccurate reports may cause unnecessary anxiety, suffering and financial burdens and may even contribute directly to death. The protection of the public and individual health requires the licensure of clinical laboratory personnel who meet minimum requirements for safe practice and the imposition of effective discipline upon those practitioners who violate the applicable laws and rules of their profession (Chapter 483.800, F. S.). This application is intended for clinical laboratory directors, supervisors, technologists and technicians.
