As supervisor of Histology, I review and sign off on the SOPs yearly.  Any new or altered are final approved by our medical director.  The medical director also signs off on the hardcopy manuals each year.

Subject: [Histonet] Approval and review of procedures

I am currently helping organize histology SOPs and need some help clarifying who can perform SOP review. In cytology, the technical supervisor (MD) reviews and approves procedures. CLIA rules for clinical departments allow MT as technical supervisors. Can an HT be a technical supervisor and perform annual review of SOPs?
