Individual Quality Control Plan (IQCP)

IQCP Information

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has implemented IQCP as a new quality control option based on risk management for CLIA laboratories performing non-waived testing. IQCP will provide laboratories with flexibility in customizing Quality Control (QC) policies and procedures based on the test systems in use and the unique aspects of each laboratory.

IQCP is voluntary. Laboratories will continue to have the option of achieving compliance by following all CLIA QC regulations as written.

Laboratories who missed the free IQCP Workbook National Webinar on July 15, 2015, can download the transcript from that event (pdf).


Visit the CMS CLIA IQCP web page for a complete listing of IQCP documents and in-depth information.
