After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Summarize the basic functions of different regulatory bodies associated with the anatomic pathology lab.
- Understand how the regulatory bodies can impact the histology laboratory.
- Discuss other types of compliance guidance and where that may fit in the histology laboratory.

In the ever-changing specialties of immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics, it has become increasingly important to understand the regulatory implications of the assays we bring into the laboratory. This webcast presentation will introduce the different regulatory bodies under which an anatomic pathology laboratory can be set up, such as, for example, CAP, CLIA, and GLP. This structure will depend on the work the laboratory does and the environment in which it operates. The session will also explain the differences in each type of regulatory body and where they apply.
