New scope of accreditation report for BC laboratory medicine facilities

In keeping with the College's value of transparency, the Diagnostic Accreditation Program is implementing a new scope of accreditation report for laboratory medicine facilities in BC. As of December 1, 2019, facilities are now required to complete a scope of accreditation report as part of the pre-assessment paperwork.

A scope of accreditation report will provide a comprehensive list of all examinations and services for which a facility has been accredited. The scope of accreditation report has been developed to meet internationally recognized accreditation standards for accrediting bodies.

A scope of accreditation report is completed prior to an initial assessment and updated at the beginning of each accreditation cycle, or when a facility has been accredited for a change in examinations and services provided.

Completed scope of accreditation reports are available to the public on the College website here.
