The College of American Pathologists' blood bank proficiency survey program began in 1964 and has expanded to a variety of surveys addressing the needs of transfusion services, blood centers and physician office laboratories. Its role has evolved from a purely voluntary educational tool for self-improvement to fulfilling the regulatory requirement of CLIA '88. Its educational component will persist through an ungraded technical portion in association with a supplemental questionnaire and a survey critique.
