Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act

The New Mexico Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) program ensures that all laboratory facilities (including physician office laboratories) meet the established health and safety standards for specimen testing.

The mission of the program is to ensure that the highest quality of laboratory testing is performed in New Mexico through education and enforcement of federal regulations. The purpose of CLIA is to set minimum standards for all laboratories to follow and to determine if laboratories are achieving those standards.
