PLI audit begins in April

28 March 2017

Since 2014, it has been mandatory that Practising MLTs carry professional liability insurance (PLI) in all employment settings, and are able to provide proof that their PLI complies with CMLTO Bylaw requirements. Each year, CMLTO conducts a PLI audit. Practising members are randomly selected and contacted by email with a request to complete the online PLI audit form.

This year’s audit period is from April 10 – May 10, 2017. Members who are selected for audit have 30 days to complete the online audit form and may update it as they acquire information.

Please be reminded that failure to provide proof of PLI coverage will result in a restriction of your ability to practice medical laboratory technology in Ontario. Failure to respond to the audit is considered professional misconduct.
