ADVISORY: NEQAS 2018 Enrollment Period

Most of the clinical laboratories fail to comply with the External Quality Assessment Program (EQAP) requirement as stipulated in section 6.B.1.f of Administrative Order No. 2007-20027, which is a prerequisite for the issuance of a License to Operate (LTO). One reason for non-compliance is the missed participation of clinical laboratories in the program due to the difference schedules of application or registration period, and release of Certificates by NRLs.

To address these issues, the National External Quality Assessment Scheme (NEQAS), the HFSRB and NRLs have agreed to harmonize the schedules.
