Medical - Medical (general) / laboratories
German term or phrase: materielle Voraussetzungen
"Die materiellen und personellen Voraussetzungen sind erfuellt"

This is for accreditation of a medical laboratory. I am not sure about 'materiellen'. 'The pre-requisites in terms of ? and staff are fulfilled' is what I currently have.

Could it be 'equipment' as in materielle Ausstattung des Labors?

agree  Armorel Young: yes - I'd steer clear of "pre-requisites", which doesn't sound natural in English. Use "requirements", or turn it round as Steffen suggests.
