The 11th edition of Standards for Immunohematology Reference Laboratories (IRL Standards) relies on a matrix of quality management system and detailed operational requirements, such as those defining minimum antisera resources.
Significant changes in the 11th edition include:
Guidance for Standards for Immunohematology Reference Laboratories includes verbatim requirements from the IRL Standards interspersed with guidance. Language from the IRL Standards is presented; when there is appropriate guidance for that standard, the guidance language follows the standard with the heading “Guidance.” This format allows the reader to see both the requirement and the associated guidance side by side.
Please note that there is no guidance for some standards. The Immunohematology Reference Laboratories Standards Committee has chosen to focus Guidance for Standards for Immunohematology Reference Laboratories on those issues that may require additional context and/or examples to assist in attaining compliance with the Standards.
