To be added to the Trusted Travel List of Labs allowed to generate TT codes (commonly called the Trusted Labs Network), we are enjoined by international norms to verify your credentials as enabling you to offer clinical laboratory services in your native jurisdiction.
Whilst we strive to only onboard laboratories of the highest standards and integrity into the Network, we must rely on the capacity and work of the competent authorities in the jurisdiction in which the lab operates. The most critical validation we need is licensing or registration by a statutory or regulatory body. If your organisation outsources the actual testing and do not run your own facilities, then it is the statutory or regulatory licenses and registrations of the actual testing partner that we need to sight.
Of course, any additional accreditations and membership of professional bodies are useful, but the process of statutory registration and licensing would normally already take that into account, whilst periodic auditing ensures that standards are up to date.
With this context in mind, we would like to request a mix of documents from you to give us a high degree of assurance that we can recommend you to the travellers participating in the Global Haven program. Apart from statutory licensing or regulatory certificates, which are a legal requirement to operate, all other documents merely increase our confidence in our decisions to admit laboratories in the Trusted Labs Network.
