All laboratories undertaking forensic work will need to carry out internal audits of their business processes and the performance of the testing activities to ensure they are delivering a competent service. An accredited laboratory needs to check not only that laboratory personnel at all levels are implementing the prescribed processes but also that its systems and practices are compatible with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 : 2005

What are the benefits?

This course is tailored to help personnel from forensic organisations gain a sound understanding of the internal audit process and its value to management. This interactive course uses examples relevant to a forensic laboratory, including the use of a fingerprint enhancement technique as part of the method witnessing exercise. It includes role play exercises relating to undertaking audits and giving the subsequent feedback. The course allows delegates to gain confidence and helps to stimulate ideas that the delegates can put in to practice in their own organisations.
