The Oregon Laboratory Compliance Section contracts with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to carry out the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) in Oregon. Clinical laboratory regulations ensure laboratories follow state and federal regulations for clinical laboratory testing performed on human specimens, as well as non-medical (employment) substance of abuse testing, and health screening or health fair testing.
