Important Notes

Pathologists can and should begin using the updated protocols as soon as possible after web posting. Vendors should undertake implementation of the new checklists into their products as soon as possible.

The CAP recognizes that full implementation by some institutions and laboratory informatics software vendors may require a period of months. The CAP plans to recognize an 8 month period of overlap for LAP accredited laboratories in which either the previous or new version of the protocol may be used.



Copyright and Disclaimer

The checklists are protected by copyright and cannot be used in an information system without a license. Please read the copyright, disclaimer and authorized use licensing model for terms and conditions.
