Laboratory Management

The Quality Management Oversight Framework (QMOF) for laboratories that support CFIA’s mandate has been developed to help the CFIA’s business lines meet domestic and international requirements and obligations and to help ensure that the laboratory results on which Agency depends are valid and reliable. The QMOF provides guidance and endeavours to harmonize the BL approaches for consistency, while being flexible and taking into account the different requirements of the business lines.

In the context of the QMOF, oversight encompasses all activities, policies, and procedures that are in place or being developed to monitor and verify the performance of laboratories in such a manner that the CFIA can have confidence that the results produced by the laboratories are valid for their intended use.
