nabl Accreditation

Accreditation is the formal recognition, authorization and registration of a laboratory that has demonstrated its capability, competence and credibility to carry out the tasks it is claiming to be able to do. It provides feedback to laboratories as to whether they are performing their work in accordance with international criteria for technical competence. The concept of laboratory accreditation was developed to provide third-party certification that a laboratory is competent to perform the specific test or type of tests. Laboratory accreditation is a means to improve customer confidence in the test reports issued by the laboratory so that the clinicians and through them the patients shall accept the reports with confidence.

The National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) is an autonomous body under the aegis of the Dept. of Science & Technology and is the sole accreditation body for testing and calibration laboratories in India. NABL establishing links with international bodies has imparted international recognition to NABL accredited laboratories. Biochemistry Laboratory of the Dept of Biochemistry, AFMC is the first Biochemistry Laboratory of any Govt Medical College (not even AIIMS) or Hospital or Govt sector in India to be NABL accredited in accordance with ISO 15189:2007. Thus blood tests reports generated by Biochemistry lab, AFMC has global acceptance.
