Introduction to Forensic Accreditation

BMTA in partnership with UKAS will be hosting a forum to hear from Forensic laboratories about what they feel are the barriers to UKAS accreditation

Delegates will find out about the Codes of Practice and Conduct issued by the Forensic Science Regulator and the accreditation requirements and expectations defined by UKAS. You will also learn of the accreditation experiences of LGC, one of the largest private forensic laboratories in the UK, and of the Metropolitan Police which has achieved accreditation in most but not all of the required areas.

This event is important for laboratory managers and staff who have already achieved accreditation to ISO 17025 in some or all of the areas of expertise in which they operate. It is of particular interest to organisations which are in early stages of the accreditation process or have not yet started. As well as dealing with the general aspects of achieving UKAS accreditation, the speakers will cover specialised and topical subjects such as digital forensics, explosives and drug analysis to evidential standards.


Event Cost: £95.00 +VAT.
