About CLIA Waiver

The U.S. Congress passed the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) in 1988 to establish federal quality standards for the clinical laboratory testing industry. The FDA grants CLIA waivers to FDA 510(k)-cleared tests that are "simple" and have an "insignificant risk of producing an erroneous result." CLIA waived tests may be performed by non-laboratory trained health care workers at any facility that fulfills certain minimal requirements, such as holding a CLIA Certificate of Waiver and following manufacturer instructions.
