CSA Preface

This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-Z22870, Point-of-care testing (POCT) - Requirements for quality and competence, which is an adoption, with Canadian deviations, of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 22870 (first edition, 2006-02-01).

1. Scope

This International Standard gives specific requirements applicable to point-of-care testing and is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 15189. The requirements of this International Standard apply when POCT is carried out in hospital, clinic and by a healthcare organization providing ambulatory care. This International Standard can be applied to transcutaneous measurements, the analysis of expired air, and in vivo monitoring of physiological parameters.

Patient self-testing in a home or community setting is excluded, but elements of this International Standard can be applicable.

NOTE Local, regional, and national regulations are to be taken into consideration.
