June 9, 2020 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2020) a global initiative, jointly established by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF), to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation.
IQMH is internationally-recognized as a competent provider of ISO 15189 accreditation as a signatory (Mutual Recognition Arrangement [MRA]) of ILAC and its Asia Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (APAC). IQMH issues accreditation certificates within the MRA under its ISO 15189 Plus™ banner which means facilities and patients can rely on medical diagnostic test results that are recognized around the globe. IQMH-accredited facilities (medical testing laboratories, specimen collection centres, diagnostic imaging services, echocardiography labs) should be proud of their important contribution to quality improvement and patient safety. Our thoughts are with our healthcare colleagues during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to support them in the provision of safe, competent and high-quality services for patients and their families.
This year’s World Accreditation Day theme focuses on how accreditation improves food safety, supporting the confidence of consumers, suppliers, purchasers, regulators and specifiers in the quality and safety of food.
