Implementing the 2016 TNI Standard

SYNOPSIS

The objective of this 16-hour course is to help laboratory management understand the requirements of the 2016 TNI Standard. The material, based on the requirements outlined in the V1M2 of the 2016 TNI standard, will "demystify" terminology, provide assistance in understanding the requirements, and provide guidance on how to incorporate the requirements of the Standard into laboratory operations without disrupting current practices.

Audience:

Laboratory Assessors, Data Users, Quality Managers, Laboratory Managers

Learning Outcomes:

  • Have an understanding on how to "demystify" terminology to familiar expressions and language usage.
  • Have a better understanding of the requirements by use of the "translation" process (see first objective).
  • Have the ability to evaluate current operations against the standard requirements for compliance
  • Learn to think in terms of using current operations in developing a quality management system rather than reinventing the wheel
  • Be able to use the standard requirements to effectively develop and/or refine processes and procedures
