GL 111 Setup/Remodel of a QC Laboratory and Development of a QC Program
This guideline emphasizes the importance of using standard operating procedures (SOPs) to ensure that testing is performed correctly every time. The ability to generate results in a repeatable, reproducible manner is crucial to using quality testing constructively.
The guideline provides an outline to identify the parameters to be considered in establishing a new laboratory, or remodeling an existing laboratory. Also discussed are development parameters for a dairy quality assurance/quality control program.
