Operate a Medical Laboratory

In Saskatchewan, all medical laboratories operate under a licence issued by the Ministry of Health in accordance with The Medical Laboratory Licensing Act and The Medical Laboratory Licensing Regulations. A medical laboratory is defined as a place where a test is performed or where a specimen is taken or collected for the purpose of transporting it to another medical laboratory where it is to be tested.

As a condition of the licence, the licensee must participate in the Laboratory Quality Assurance (QA) Program administered by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan.

In order to renew or apply for a medical laboratory licence, the application form is to be completed in its entirety and submitted to the Ministry of Health for adjudication and approval.
