ELAP-Webinar-15 - QMS Implementation for a small laboratory
Small laboratories often feel overwhelmed by the requirements set forth in the 2016 TNI Standard and other regulations. A full-time Quality Manager is not always required (or possible). The objective of this training is to provide small laboratories with an understanding of what is required and to assist with ideas and tools to comply. Remember, standards and regulations state what to do, not how to do it.
