Public Health England has opened a consultation this week in joint partnership with professional organisations.
This consultation asks for feedback in relation to the Standards for Microbiology Investigations Q 1: commercial and in house diagnostic tests: evaluations, verifications and validations.
We have refined the process so that UK SMI users can comment more easily if they see no requirement for amendments to the document out for consultation.
This information is as important to the consultation process as comments.
