CLSI documents GP26 and HS01, which focus on a model to assist with implementation and maintenance of an effective quality management system, were merged and updated in 2011 and tailored just to laboratories.  This presentation will review these changes, including:  a brief history of various editions over the last decade; a description of the major parts of the document; an explanation of the revised Quality Management System (QMS) model; major additions and changes to the Quality System Essential (QSE) requirements; and transitions needed if a laboratory already has a QSE-based QMS

At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:

  • Explain the rationale for re-ordering the QSEs

  • Describe key sources of QSE information

  • List at least 3 major additions or changes to QSE requirements

  • Modify an existing QSE-based QMS to be consistent with the revised QSEs.
