JCAHO inspection - storage under sinks


Greetings.  Do any of you have recent JCAHO experience and know if
materials in pathology can be stored in cabinets under the sinks?  We were
first  told (by hospital administration)  we could have only cleaning
supplies under the sinks, and now we are told that we can have absolutely
nothing under the sinks.  Has JCAHO sited anyone for this, or do you have
any references to this?  It makes sense to me if the sinks are in patient
areas or public areas, but I don't see the logic of it applying to
non-patient areas.  Any advice greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
