Marketing and Record Retention

The laboratory must ensure that its sales and marketing materials are clear and not deceptive:

  • They should fully inform the physician about the appropriate use of laboratory tests and services.
  • They should not be designed to induce unnecessary testing.

The laboratory must have in place a document control system and record retention policy that ensures records are accessible in case of an audit or investigation.

  • Records should be retrievable.
  • Related documents should be linked.
