Accreditation to ISO 15189 by the Centre for Accreditation is a mark of excellence recognized around the world. We assess the ability of a facility to perform medical testing or the collection of specimens with formal recognition of this competence through accreditation to our ISO 15189 Plus™ requirements. It also provides facilities with the tools they need to standardize their processes, address diminishing resources and set a quality benchmark.
The principle international standards on which our programs are based are:
For each program, IQMH has defined the applicable requirements necessary to issue an accreditation certificate and has provided extensive guidance for each requirement. The IQMH Accreditation Requirements and Guidance Information includes not only the applicable clauses of the appropriate international standards, but also:
Because of the extra rigour of our requirements, our programs are brand named ISO 15189 Plus™.
Each accreditation requirement has an accompanying reference source. Accompanying each requirement “What To Look For” guidance information that explains the intent of the requirement and provides insight into its application. Usually, this guidance information is phrased as a question, and may include an indication of documents and records required to meet the requirements.
IQMH Accreditation Requirements and Guidance Information are available for purchase by any interested parties at https://iqmh.org/Shop/Category-Viewer/accreditation. Once an application for accreditation is submitted, that facility will receive additional enhanced access to the requirements and guidance information through QView™, our password-protected web portal. This will include automatic updates of new versions of the requirements.
