               Section 109. There shall be a board of registration of phlebotomists, in section 109 to 111, inclusive, to be called the board which shall consist of 7 members, one of whom shall be the commissioner of public health, or his designee, and 6 of which shall be appointed by the governor. Members of the board shall be residents of the commonwealth and citizens of the United States. Six members of the board shall be licensed phlebotomists, under the provisions of sections 264 to 274 of chapter 112, except in cases of members originally appointed to the board, two of whom must have at least 10 years of active work experience as a phlebotomist, and one member of the board shall be a representative of the public subject to section 9B. The board of registration of phlebotomists shall establish the requirements for licensure, fees, continuing education, and standards for the licensure, and professional and ethical conduct in accordance with the provisions of this chapter. The board shall determine the qualifications of applicants to be licensed, and grant licenses to applicants who qualify under this chapter and chapter 112 and meet the requirements of the board’s rules and regulations. The governor shall designate the chairperson of the board, and may, at any time, change such designation. Members shall be appointed for terms of three years. No member shall be appointed to more than two consecutive full terms but a member appointed for less than a full term may serve two full terms in addition to such part of a full term. A member may be removed by the governor for neglect of duty, misconduct or malfeasance or misfeasance in office after a written notice of the charges against him and an opportunity to be heard. The governor may also fill any vacancy in the board for the unexpired portion of the term.
               Section 110. The members of the board shall serve without compensation; provided, however, that each member shall be reimbursed for actual expenses reasonably incurred in the performance of duties as a member or on behalf of the board.

               Section 264. As used in sections 264 to 274, inclusive, the following words shall, unless the context clearly means otherwise, have the following meanings: ‘approved national certification agency’, one of the nationally recognized agencies that certify phlebotomists by examination, including but not limited to:

           ‘Phlebotomy’, the incision into a vein or artery for the purpose of drawing blood.
               Section 265. The board may issue necessary rules and regulations for the proper conduct of its duties, including rules governing the qualifications of applicants, and shall keep a full record of its proceedings and keep a record of the names of all persons examined or registered by it, which shall be open to public inspection. Said record shall include the licensee name, last known employer and residential address, date of licensing and license number.
            The board shall make an annual report containing a full and complete account of all of its official acts during the preceding year.
               Section 266. No person shall represent himself to be a phlebotomist or in the business of phlebotomy or use the title phlebotomist in the commonwealth on any sign, title, card, or other device to indicate that such person is a phlebotomist, unless such person shall have secured from the board a certificate of registration as a phlebotomist.
               Section 267. Every person, before engaging in the practice of phlebotomy in this commonwealth, shall make application to the board. Applications for registration as phlebotomists shall be made upon a form to be prescribed by the board and in the handwriting of the applicant and furnished by the board. No person shall be registered by the board as a phlebotomist unless he has been found by the board to be eighteen years of age or over, a resident of the commonwealth, is of good moral character, files an application with evidence of current certification granted by a board approved by a national certification agency, provides proof of meeting educational standards as established by the board, and a registration fee to be determined by the commissioner of administration under the provision of section 3B of chapter 7.

No person registered under said sections as a phlebotomist shall engage in the occupation covered by such registration until the prescribed renewal requirements as established by the board have been performed and evidence thereof submitted. Any phlebotomist whose registration has not been renewed within three years following the date of expiration thereof shall be entitled to renewal of such registration upon filing an application, accompanied by the proper fee therefore, by submitting evidence of certification from an approved national certification agency and any further requirements as established by the board through rule or regulation. A licensee must maintain certification from an approved national certification agency at all times.
               Section 269. Upon payment to the board of a fee and the submission of a written application provided by said board, the board shall issue a license to a person who holds a valid license or registration issued by another jurisdiction which has standards substantially equivalent to or exceeding the standards of the commonwealth, as determined by the board, and extends similar privileges to persons licensed by the commonwealth.
               Section 270. Any person aggrieved by the refusal of the board to grant, or by its suspension or cancellation of, a registration, or by its refusal to again register him, may, within ten days after such action, appeal to the district court within the judicial district of which he resides by bringing a petition in said court addressed to the justice of the court, praying for a rehearing by the court. Upon the filing of the petition for a rehearing in the case of a suspension or cancellation of a registration, such suspension or cancellation shall be stayed pending the final decision of the court. After such notice to the board as the court deems necessary, the court shall hear the witnesses and shall affirm the decision of the board, unless it shall appear that it was made without proper cause or in bad faith, in which case the decision of the board shall be reversed. The court shall hear the petition within thirty days of the filing of it in said court. The decision of the court shall be final and conclusive.
               Section 271. The board may establish by rule or regulation the minimum educational and experience qualifications which the applicant must possess before being allowed to apply for a license under this chapter.
               Section 272.

               Section 273. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the board shall issue a phlebotomist license without examination to an applicant who meets the requirements of sections 264 to 274 and provides to the board satisfaction that he is and actually has been in the paid professional practice for 5 years out of the last 10 years in the field of phlebotomy, preceding the effective date of this act.
