Transition Implementation Policy

ILAC, in consultation with ISO, has agreed on a three-year period for medical laboratories that demonstrate conformity to the ISO 15189:2012 standard, to make the transition from the ISO 15189:2012, to the ISO 15189:2022 standard.

The Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC), in keeping with this communique, requires its accredited medical laboratories to make this transition by December 6, 2025. After this date, accreditation to ISO 15189:2012 will no longer be valid.

During this transition period, both revisions of the standard are equally valid and applicable. JANAAC will facilitate the use of internal documents that will feature compliance with both versions of the standard until December 31, 2024.

Medical Laboratories may continue to submit applications for accreditation to the ISO 15189:2012 up to September 30 2023, in which case, initial assessments must be concluded by March 31, 2024.

After September 30, 2023, JANAAC will no longer be accepting applications for ISO 15189:2012 accreditation.

After December 31, 2024, all assessments (initial, re-assessments and interim assessments, including scope extensions) will be conducted using the revised standard, ISO 15189:2022... Read more
