When applying MLAP accreditation, an applicant
laboratory must submit an "application form" with some necessary documents to
the head office or any of local offices of National Institute of Evaluation and Technology
(Nite), and then pay (remit) the application fee prescribed by the cabinet order.
After the application is formally accepted, an accreditation assessment is carried out.
The assessment consists of document reviews and on-site assessments. Conformity to
accreditation criteria is evaluated through out the assessment. After the
assessment, its result is notified to the applicant laboratory. The figure below indicates
the outline of the accreditation process.
Note) When an accreditation body is designated
as the designated accreditation body, any applicant laboratory can apply also to the designated accreditation body
other than Nite.
