MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE COUNCIL OF NIGERIA (MLSCN)The E-licensing system was flagged off together with IHRIS, a health worker training, licensing and certification tracking system, during the third stakeholders meeting of the council in Abuja and took effect from the  month of August.
Acting Registrar of the council, Mr Tosan Erhabor, in a statement at the weekend said medical laboratory scientists can now print their 2016 license from the comfort of their homes and offices.
 “The procedure has been hoisted on the council’s website and would go a long way in removing the bottlenecks experienced by members in their quest to obtain their annual license to practice,” he said.
He also presented a policy agenda for his administration since taking over from the slain Acting Registrar of the council, Mrs, Olufunke saying, “it is a policy strategy for implementation hinged on tripartite agenda of Registration, Regulation, and Accreditation driven by 15 measurable cardinal points.”
Erhabor said his administration has already kick started its bottom –up approach in order to deviate from the norms which had given the council a bad name in, the past, and to key into the change mantra of the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
At the end of the meeting, the stakeholders called for tamper proof security codes for the newly introduced e-license and also endorsed the  protocol for inspection of medical laboratories in Nigeria.
Other resolution include that MLSCN’s should review academic and professional training curricula for training institutions in line with global best practices, pledged to support the council and other relevant agencies in unveiling the culprits behind the assassination of the former Acting Registrar, Late Mrs O. F. Omotuyi, boost council’s efforts on research projects, and also mandated the council to tackle fraudsters in certificate and license forgery among others.
