Workshops - Accreditation in genetic testing laboratories


The specific objectives are to compare and share experiences of implementing and working with quality systems and to examine cases of concrete situations related to quality processes that may arise in laboratories, like non-conformities, reporting, training etc.

Furthermore the common deficiencies in a quality management system and the ways to proceed for accreditation will be discussed during expert-led interactive sessions in small groups.

ISO 15189 will be used as the reference standard during the workshop.
