The College website is the new home of the UK Standards for Microbiology Investigations (UK SMIs).

Working with the Standards Unit at the UK Health Security Agency and UK SMI Steering Committee, we have migrated the UK SMI documents from the www.gov.uk website to the College website. 

The new webpages have been designed to be user friendly, easy to navigate and functional. They also provide printable UK SMI documents in a PDF format.

Pages covered include:

  • Bacteriology
  • Virology
  • Quality related guidance
  • Identification
  • Test procedures
  • National user manual
  • Syndromic documents
  • SMI news
