Board for Accreditation of Prescription Foot Orthotic Laboratories
Accredited facilities are required to complete and pass two components to qualify for accreditation. The first component is a technical component, which evaluates the expertise of the facility in filling standard foot orthotic prescriptions. The second component looks at the quality systems in place at the given facility, through the development of a quality assurance document. This document must address specific issues raised by the BAPFOL Quality Document. Both components are administered through a coded, juried process, to maintain objectivity in the results.
In order to maintain accreditation, Accredited Labs must:
1. Pay an annual fee of $100 USD,
2. Update QA Document when changes occur in the manufacturing process, i.e. integrating automation into a previously manual laboratory, and
3. Annually submit proof that the Labís Technical Director or Manager has attained at least 18 CEC hours.
If your facility is interested in becoming a BAPFOL Accredited facility, please contact Jeff Root at 1-530-878-9300 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
