Poster Information
Abstract: ISO 15189:2012 based upon ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 9001, specifies requirements for quality and competence in medical laboratories. ISO 15189:2012 can be used by medical laboratories in developing their quality management systems and assessing their own competence. It can also be used for confirming or recognizing the competence of medical laboratories by laboratory customers, regulating authorities and accreditation bodies. The 15189 standard is focused on the medical laboratory, and its goal is the customers’ satisfaction. For this purpose, the 15189 standards are based not only on a management system but also a set of medical laboratory technical specifications. ISO ‭Technical Committee ‭(TC) 212 ‬has developed ISO 15189‭ ‬‬in 2013 and revised it in 2017. ISO 15189:2012 is now under review and will be ISO/AWI 15189.Summary: -References: Schneider, F., Maurer, C.,& Friedberg, R. C. (2017). International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 15189.
