Guidance for Outsourcing Laboratory Testing Services

The Pharmacy and Poisons Board is committed to a policy of providing exemplary service with respect to performing accurate testing and analysis of Health Products and technologies. In this regard, the Board may outsource testing services as part of its mandate of prescribing a system of sampling, analysis and other testing procedures of finished health products released into the market to ensure compliance with the labeled specifications. This document is intended as a general guidance for the Board when externally provided products and services affecting laboratory activities are used, with a special focus on testing services. The Board shall ensure that only suitable externally provided products and services that affect laboratory activities are used, when such products and services are intended for incorporation into the laboratoryโ€™s own activities and are used to support the operation of the laboratory. This guidance document seeks to inform persons on the manner of undertaking subcontracting agreements by the Board as a body corporate capable of entering into agreements. The policies and relevant laws relating to contracting by government agencies shall apply as necessary, to the subcontracting of a laboratory under these guidelines.
