HOW FEES ARE CALCULATED

 

DCLS calculates a laboratory\\\\\\\\\\'s total fee by adding the fees for the number of test methods in each category in the fee table for which the laboratory is certified or applies to be certified.  Contact Lab_Cert@dgs.virginia.gov for more information about the fee category for a specific method.

 

ADDITIONAL FEES

 

Additional fees apply when a laboratory:

  • Applies for modification of certification under 1VAC30-41-110
  • Is moving its location when the move requires DCLS to perform an onsite assessment
  • Requests reinstatement of certification when DCLS requires an onsite assessment

 

Hourly review fee and calculation of total fee.  The fee to be charged is the sum of the total hourly charges for all reviewers plus any onsite assessment costs incurred.  The hourly charge per reviewer is $71. The charge per reviewer is determined by multiplying the number of hours expended in the review by $71.

 

Onsite review and travel expenses.  If an onsite review is required, travel time and onsite review time will be charged at the same hourly rate of $71 and any travel expenses will be added.

WHEN TO PAY

 

Payment is due at the time the application is made or annually thereafter upon receipt of the invoice from DCLS.  Annual billing precedes the expiration of the current certificate.

 

HOW TO PAY

 

Fees may be paid by check, draft, or postal money order payable to the Treasurer, Commonwealth of Virginia, or submitted electronically, if available.  Payment must be in U.S. currency, except that agencies and institutions of the Commonwealth of Virginia may submit interagency transfers for the amount of the fee.  Laboratories may also pay fees using credit cards.  All fees must be sent to the following address, or submitted electronically, if available: DCLS, Attn: Lab Certification, 600 North 5th Street, Richmond, VA 23219.  A fee payment form is available on the Drinking Water page of the DCLS website at www.dgs.virginia.gov/dcls.
