CLSI's Consensus Council

The Consensus Council serves as the consensus body for CLSI.

It sets priorities for and manages CLSI standards development and identifies continual improvement opportunities for standards development-related processes. The Consensus Council also votes on Final Draft documents to confirm adherence to process requirements.

Consensus Council members review and judge materials submitted by peers, and make decisions in alignment with Board-directed goals and objectives. Consensus Council members actively participate in Consensus Council activities, conference calls, and meetings.
