What is ISO 15189?

ISO 15189 Medical laboratories — Requirements for quality and competence was published by ISO in January 2003 and revised in 2007, 2012 and 2022.   It was developed by the International Organization for Standardization's Technical Committee 212 (ISO/TC 212).   The standard is based on ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO 9001, but it takes into consideration the specific requirements of the medical environment and the importance of the medical laboratory to patient care.  The objective of ISO 15189 is to establish a framework for laboratory management so that the laboratory’s focus is on the users/customers of the laboratory services.

ISO 15189 couples a total quality management approach with documentation methodology to establish a management system that focuses on the elimination of errors with continual improvement in all activities. Some elements of the management system include requirements for collection of patient samples, the interpretation of test results, acceptable turnaround times, how testing is to be provided in a medical emergency, and the role of the laboratory in the education and training of its staff.
