Introduction: Colombia developed its law and health services on international counseling; public health laboratory (PHL) is an example. Evolution of national public health, specially during 2003 to 2007 paved the way for a PHL diagnostic and evaluation from the law and quality management. Methods: descriptive longitudinal study with independent surveys to the PHL based upon a proposal for an Authorization System and a modification and application of epidemiologic surveillance cycle to make information feedback and follow-up onto the PHL. Results: PHL coordinators participation was important during 2006 to 2008, up to 67%. PHL reached in 2008 64% in management and 77% in technical requirements; items with the most progress were Organization & Client service, Quality assurance and Biosafety. Conclusions: law was positively influential in the PHL performance; there are evidences of advances in quality with technical competence; their personnel, methods, processes and facilities do require technical assistance from central level. It is needed a prospective exercise for the future.
