Quality management (QM), including quality assurance and quality control, was developed in clinical laboratories in North America and Western Europe, but must be implemented worldwide to ensure accurate, reproducible, and clinically useful results. India, a middle income country with a population of over 1.34 billion, has limited budget allotted to health care. As yet accreditation for clinical laboratories is not mandatory, which contributes to challenges in implementing good laboratory practice. This review provides a summary of internationally laid down QM principles and their application in a middle income country like India. © 2019 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
