Official Summary

Taking Essential Steps for Testing Act of 2012 - Amends the Public Health Service Act to revise sanctions for laboratories that intentionally refer proficiency testing samples required for certification to another laboratory for analysis by:

(2) making the one-year certificate revocation for such a laboratory optional rather than mandatory.
