Enacts new GS Chapter 93F, North Carolina Clinical Laboratory Science Practice Board. Establishes the five-member North Carolina Clinical Laboratory Science Practice (Board), which has 12 duties, including administering the provisions of this Chapter, establishing licensing criteria for applicants, and establishing continuing education and competency requirements for licensees. Sets out Board membership requirements, sets membership terms, provides for the filling of vacancies and removal of Board members, as well as additional provisions for Board operations. Prohibits, on or after January 1, 2016, a person from engaging in the practice of clinical laboratory science or holding out to the public that the person is a clinical laboratory science practitioner without a license. Sets out five exemptions from the licensure requirement. Licenses are valid for two years. Allows the Board to take disciplinary actions, including suspending or revoking a license under specified conditions.
