What is ISO accreditation?
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a
worldwide federation of national standards bodies from some
140 countries, with one body representing each country.
This non-governmental organization was established in 1947
for the purpose of enhancing quality, increasing reliability,
and improving health and safety of products and services
ISO 9001:2000 accreditation emphasizes the importance of
having the right protocols in place. An independent ISO
auditor visits all GENOMA?s laboratories every six months to
ensure that all established protocols are being followed,
and to evaluate and improve the quality of care.
What does ISO accreditation mean
Being ISO certified commits us to ongoing improvement of our
service as quality is measured continuously.
This ranges from continuous scrutiny of procedures in the
laboratory to developing our own analytical procedures and
providing high quality counseling for patients. It also
means an ongoing commitment to staff training and
