Is lead poisoning reportable to the health department?
Yes. Reporting of blood lead test results is mandated under Chapter 64D-3, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
The results of ALL blood lead tests are reportable to the Florida Department of Health in an approved electronic format by the end of the next business day following
laboratory findings. For questions about lead reporting contact us.
In addition, ALL blood lead test results greater than or equal to 10 µg/dL are also reportable to the County Health Department where the patient resides.
