Just a quick one.. Is there a law in regards to laboratory

Customer Question

Hi just a quick one.. Is there a law in regards ***** ***** data retention for commercial laboratories?
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: NSW
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: no
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no, it is a question regarding the audit of a laboratory, normally NATA would cover it, but i don't find anything specific to contract laboratories, US FDA seems to put 5 years on data retention, and NATA has specified not less than 5 years on a very specific topic not related to commercial laboratories. I was wondering if there is legislation to that effect covering commercial laboratories.
