Crime laboratories are coming under increased scrutiny regarding their operating practices. Laboratory accreditation is an opportunity for a laboratory to demonstrate its compliance with established quality standards. ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is an international standard in use by forensic science laboratory accrediting bodies to assess the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. This course will provide an overview of the ISO 17025 standard as it pertains to technical SOP writing in a laboratory setting; examples will be used to demonstrate pertinent issues. The format of the module will be a live, interactive classroom, allowing participants to discuss questions with the presenter and other participants.
