Developing Standards Through a Unique Consensus Process

The strength of CLSI’s consensus process begins with our volunteers, who bring a diversity of skill sets, depth of expertise, and vast knowledge of regulatory requirements to lead the development of globally applicable clinical laboratory standards.

CLSI’s collaborative approach ensures balanced representation from the global laboratory community to yield unbiased consensus standards that can be confidently adopted by laboratories, clinicians, regulatory agencies, and industry throughout the world.
