Laboratory Services Requisitions FAQs

Who reviews the requests and makes the decision?

The Agency established a Requisition Review Committee (RRC) with medical leadership, service provider, and practitioner representatives. The RRC’s role is to review and make recommendations to the Ministry of Health for new or revised laboratory requisitions, ensuring that they receive the appropriate ministerial approval under the regulations. The RRC will meet at regular intervals throughout the year.

How will requestors be kept informed on the status of their requests?

The Agency’s Program Coordinator will keep requestors informed throughout the request review process. Once the RRC has processed the request, the Agency will prepare a draft requisition and distribute to the requestor and related stakeholders for feedback. Once consensus is reached, the Agency will make its recommendation to the Ministry of Health, and communicate the decision and effective date.

What happens once the request is approved and posted?

Stakeholders will be advised that a new or updated requisition is available with an implementation timeline of six months.
