The role of the clinical laboratory becomes more and more important for the diagnosis, prediction, monitoring and therapeutic treatment of patients. The requirement for accurate and reliable laboratory results is obvious and indispensable.
Accreditation is a means of ensuring that such a requirement is met, thus contributing to the establishment and further development of a trusting relationship between the laboratory, the patients and the associate clinical doctors.
Accreditation is, at a global level, the cornerstone of the Conformity Assessment. Legal or natural persons are accredited when proving that they perform specific activities responsibly, impartially and with technical competence, according to both standardization (international and national standards) and specific regulatory requirements.
