15A NCAC 02H .1107       RECERTIFICATION

(a)  A laboratory decertified for any reason, other than the submittal of falsified data reports or other information, may be recertified after 30 days, upon satisfactory demonstration to the state laboratory that all deficiencies have been corrected.

(b)  In the case of a laboratory decertified for submitting falsified data reports or other information, recertification shall not occur until at least 12 months after the decertification and then only at such time as the laboratory has satisfactorily demonstrated to the Director that the standards for initial certification have been met.

(c)  Should decertification occur due to either failure of performance samples or split samples, a written request must be made to the state laboratory requesting evaluations similar to the parameters for which the laboratory was decertified.  Two consecutive samples must be successfully evaluated to achieve recertification.  The first of these samples for recertification will be submitted or arranged by the Division no later than 30 days after receipt of the written request.  The second will be submitted or arranged no later than 30 days after the first.
