Diagnostic care is the heart of the healthcare management system. Clinical laboratories that are accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) get worldwide acceptance. Accreditation is an attempt to encourage diagnostic laboratories performing basic tests to adopt quality practices, thus improving healthcare system at grass root level in the country. A large number of laboratories are now accredited, but majority of them are in private sector. Very few clinical laboratories associated with government organization participate and are able to achieve accreditation by NABL. Fortunately, our laboratory is one of them. With the experience gained during the process of getting NABL accreditation, we feel competent enough to comment upon and summarize the areas that may present difficulty in the process. We hope that most of the laboratory personnel working in the government organization will identify with our experience and get prepared as well as motivated to get their laboratory accredited by NABL.
