In an ever more competitive market place and with forensic science undergoing unprecedented levels of scrutiny it is increasingly important for organisations to be able to demonstrate their technical competence and the validity of the processes they use. In addition The Forensic Science Regulator has chosen UKAS accreditation as part of the Standards Framework and has made it a firm requirement that providers of forensic science to the CJS gain ISO/IEC 17025 : 2005 accreditation.

What are the benefits?

This course aims to facilitate delegates’ understanding of the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 : 2005, within a forensic science context, and to provide an understanding of the roles of the Quality Manager and Technical Manager.
