Group Accreditation
As per the A143 – CALA Policy on Group Accreditation, network laboratories operating from more than one location and operating under a single management system may qualify for CALA group accreditation. Each laboratory with the group will be assigned a unique member number and Individual scopes of accreditation are issued to each member of the group. The scope of accreditation of each location will contain references to the location being part of a group accreditation and will list all the other locations that are part of the Group.

For more information, please download A143.
