Details on CAP

CAP is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. Inspectors examine the records and quality control of the laboratory for the preceding two years, as well as the education and qualifications of the total staff, the adequacy of facilities, equipment, safety and management to determine how well the laboratory is serving patients. The CAP laboratory accreditation program, launched in the 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.
