Section 574 Permits

Public Health (PBH)

No person shall own or operate a clinical laboratory located in or accepting specimens from New York state or own or operate a blood bank which collects, processes, stores and/or distributes, human blood, blood derivatives or blood components, in New York state unless a valid permit has been issued as provided in section five hundred seventy-five of this title. A permit shall be issued authorizing the performance of one or more procedures or services within one or more categories. A separate permit shall be required for each facility at which clinical laboratory tests are to be performed or at which a blood bank is to be operated, provided, however that the department may adopt regulations not inconsistent with the federal clinical laboratory improvement act of nineteen hundred eighty-eight authorizing an owner to operate more than one facility under a single permit.
