Clinical Laboratory Facilities

Laboratory Field Services (LFS) provides licensing and registration services for clinical laboratories as prescribed by law. 

Registration is for waived and PPMP laboratory testing only.

Licensure is for moderate or high complexity laboratory testing.

Attention Licensed Clinical Laboratories & Facilities:

On September 28, 2017, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 658 into law. This bill temporarily suspends the annual renewal fee for clinical laboratory licenses from January 1, 2018, until January 1, 2020.

As of January 1, 2018, the annual renewal fee for clinical laboratory licenses will be suspended for two years. This means that if your laboratory renews its laboratory license on or after January 1, 2018, you do not need to pay a renewal fee. You still need to submit your renewal application, which LFS will process. You will be issued a renewed license for 2018 as usual.

  Please note that this fee suspension does NOT apply to clinical laboratory registration renewals, or to new clinical laboratory license or registration applications.
