An Important Note:

The College of American Pathologists’ (CAP) Accreditation program is driven by volunteer, practicing member pathologists and laboratory professionals that conduct on-site inspections of laboratories. This makes the CAP unique from other accreditors which compensate inspectors. The CAP accreditation program meets and/or exceeds the CMS standards for laboratory accreditation. CMS has granted deeming authority to the CAP’s program.
