CLIA - Clinical Labs
Welcome to the Nebraska Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) Program. Our mission is to ensure that the highest quality of laboratory testing is performed in the State, through the use of education and enforcement of federal CLIA regulations.
Under CLIA, a laboratory is defined as a ‘facility that performs testing on materials derived from the human body for the purpose of providing information for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of any disease or impairment of, or the assessment of the health of human beings. This program certifies, inspects and monitors clinical labs for compliance of federal CLIA regulations, and investigates complaints received to ensure clinical laboratory testing is accurate, effective and reliable.
NOTE: The State of Nebraska does not have licensure requirements for CLIA laboratories or CLIA lab personnel. Nebraska fully participates in the Federal CLIA program and any laboratory or lab personnel operating in the State of Nebraska or testing samples from the State of Nebraska must follow the federal CLIA regulations.
