Guidelines are intended for use only with HPV tests that have been analytically and clinically validated, as documented by Food and Drug Administration FDA licensing and approval or publication in peer-reviewed scientific literature Management based on results of HPV tests that have not been similarly validated may not result in outcomes intended by these guidelines and may increase the potential for patient harm.

Management decisions based on results using HPV tests not similarly validated may not result in outcomes intended by these guidelines.
