New Matrix and Sub-Matrix Guide

In preparation for the new Association Management System (AMS) database and portal, CALA has published a guidance document A136 – Matrix and Sub-Matrix Guide.  Please choose the applicable matrix and sub-matrix listed in this document when applying for accreditation for new appendices and completing “Annex 1 - Scope of Testing Template".  This approach will increase consistency between scopes and is being used to build the new database.  If you cannot find an appropriate matrix or sub–matrix for the type of testing that is being performed at your laboratory, please contact Janet Dickson at jdickson@cala.ca.  You can link directly to the document here.
