  Labs Included in a
  System Inspection


Updated January 12, 2009

The CAP can accommodate all of your laboratories under the same accreditation umbrella - including your clinics and remote limited service laboratories. Using staff medical technologist inspectors, who have a wealth of technical and managerial experience, the CAP can inspect and accredit even your smallest lab.

Imagine the convenience of working with just one accreditation organization. Experience the confidence in knowing that all of your labs are meeting the same high standards as your main facilities.

If applying for a system inspection, you may indicate additional labs that are CAP-accredited through your system application form. To include laboratories that are not currently accredited by the CAP, complete a general application request form to receive a full laboratory accreditation application (PDF, 73 K).
