Valid laboratory results are essential for diagnosis, surveillance, and trade. Such results are achieved by the use of good management practices, valid test and calibration methods, proper technique, quality control, and quality assurance, all working together within a quality management system. These subjects comprise one complex area of critical importance in the conduct of testing and in the interpretation of test results. This subject may be called laboratory quality management, and includes managerial, operational, and technical elements. A quality management programme enables the laboratory to demonstrate that it operates a viable quality system and is able to generate technically valid results. Additionally the quality management programme should enable the laboratory to show that it meets the needs of its clients or customers. The need for the mutual recognition of test results for international trade and the acceptance of international standards such as the ISO/IEC1 International Standard 17025 (7) for laboratory accreditation also affect the need and requirements for laboratory quality management programmes. The OIE has published a detailed standard on this subject (10). This chapter is not intended to reiterate the requirements of these ISO or OIE documents. Rather, it outlines the important issues and considerations a laboratory should address in the design and maintenance of its quality management programme.
