Medical lab accreditation for ISO 15189.

This organization's ISO 15189 medical laboratory accreditation is based on a thorough assessment of a medical laboratory's performance, including procedures, staff competence, and reporting. The accreditation process includes a review of management systems, in addition to examining the technical aspects of a laboratory's operation. Results from proficiency testing are an indication of a laboratory's competence and are an integral part of the assessment and accreditation process. ISO 15189 is the management-system-based standard for medical-testing laboratories that can result in higher productivity and efficiency. To assist laboratories in preparing for accreditation to ISO 15189, training courses in preparation and implementation of the quality-management system and technical aspects of the standard are also available.
