Background: The NABL standard provides an opportunity to continually improve the quality clinical lab test results. Objective: The study was conducted to evaluate the compliance of biochemistry lab test as per ISO 15189:2007 standard. Methodology: A prospective study was conducted in a tertiary - care cardiac center of southern India. A validated check list consists of pre - analytic al, analytical, post - analytical phases of lab test based on ISO standard was used to evaluate 30 samples for 21 blood parameters. Result: In Pre analytical phase, 21 parameters were evaluated using the checklists, which showed an average of approximately 8 2% of compliance whereas the analytical phase evident an approximate 97% and the Post analytical showed 74% respectively. Conclusion: The result of the study gives an insight to look into the areas of clinical biochemistry lab where the improvement is requ ired in achieving quality test results in compliance with ISO standards.
