About CLSI


International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Documents

Through an agreement with the American National Standards Institute, CLSI is able to offer ISO Technical Committee 212 approved and draft standards.

The development of international standards is within the purview of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

CLSI serves as the Secretariat of ISO Technical Committee 212 (ISO/TC 212), Clinical laboratory testing and in vitro diagnostic test systems, a responsibility that was delegated by American National Standards Institute (ANSI). ANSI is a member of ISO.

ISO/TC 212 is responsible for international standardization and guidance in the field of laboratory medicine and in vitro diagnostic test systems.

The work of ISO/TC 212 is currently supported by five working groups. This includes, for example, quality management, pre- and postanalytical (pre- and postexamination) procedures, analytical performance, laboratory safety, reference systems, and quality assurance.

CLSI also serves as the administrator for the US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for ISO/TC 212.
