Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Authority for the rule is from Subsection 26-1-30(2)(m), which establishes and enforces standards for laboratory services, which are provided by any laboratory in the state when the purpose of the services is to protect the public health.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
