The DNA Identification Act of 1994, which established NDIS, also created a DNA Advisory Board (DAB) to develop and revise recommended standards for quality assurance. The board's recommendations ultimately resulted in Standards for Forensic DNA Testing Labs and Standards for Convicted Offender Labs issued by the Director of the FBI.

To participate in NDIS, States must sign a memorandum of understanding verifying that the submitting laboratory is in compliance with the FBI's quality assurance standards.
