Important Information for Ontario Licensed Laboratories

By Editor on 4/18/2019

As previously communicated, the current version of the IQMH Medical Laboratory Accreditation Requirements (and related references) are being reviewed.  The consultation and review process will culminate in the release of Version 8 of the IQMH Medical Laboratory Accreditation Requirements this year.

In collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the IQMH Centre for Accreditation would like to bring to your attention four new references that will be included in Version 8.  These standards are currently applicable and expected for the provision of laboratory services in Ontario licensed laboratories and they will be incorporated into the IQMH Medical Laboratory Accreditation Requirements.
