When a laboratory is accredited, it indicates that a structural mechanism is in place, which allows high-quality lab work to proceed, and that the workplace is safe for staff. To pass an accreditation inspection, all aspects of lab activity are scrutinized. The way in which tests are performed, staff qualifications and experience, methodology, reporting practice, record-keeping, and quality-control programmes (both internal and external, staff training, continuing medical education, and safety) are considered. The Hong Kong College of Pathologists will work with the Hong Kong Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (HOKLAS) for the development of laboratory accreditation schemes.
