Anatomic Pathology Licenses & Accreditation
This is the licenses and accreditation page for the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology's Anatomic Pathology (AP) services. A separate page exists for our Clinical Pathology (CP) services' licenses and accreditations.
Our laboratories are located in three facilities in the University community. All locations have individual licenses and accreditations. Please refer to the list below for each locations' licenses and images of certification.
UW Anatomic Pathology has never experienced a limitation, suspension, probation or voluntary relinquishing of a license, certification or accreditation.
Washington laboratories licensed by the state’s Medical Test Site licensure program are exempt from the federal Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA). For details, see the Office of Laboratory Quality Assurance website or see the CMS website for a list of States with State licensure programs that have exemption from CLIA program requirements..
Record, Specimen, and Clinical Material Retention
Hospital pathology laboratories must retain records, specimens and clinical material in a way that meets or exceeds the more stringent of CAP accreditation standards or CLIA regulations as published by these entities.
