Since 1992, legislation has protected the public by stipulating that marketing and sale of test kits is illegal and that the results of an HIV test must be given under clinical supervision. The laws are changing after twenty-two years. In a little over four weeks, it will be legal to pop into the supermarket, buy an HIV home testing kit and within 20 minutes of using it at home, get a result. The legislative change has been made by the Department of Health, and supported by the Scottish Government. OraSure Technologies kit, approved by the FDA in the US, has been topic of discussion for use in the UK with its reps presenting their product at health conferences.
