Accreditation Certificate for Clinical Laboratories
Health is a State subject. Accreditation of clinical laboratories is undertaken by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) under the Department of Science and Technology. The compliance of requirements under ISO 15189 is used as the criteria for such accreditation by the NABL.
Accreditation of hospitals/laboratories provides a sense of assurance about the availability of quality healthcare service from the accredited institutions.
