UKAS’ assessment of laboratories undertaking forensic analysis covers a broad range of examination and testing activities, which is frequently extended to meet the increasing needs of forensic practitioners.
UKAS accreditation not only provides authoritative assurance of the technical competence of a laboratory to undertake specified analyses but also reviews particular aspects relevant to the Criminal Justice System, for example, continuity of evidence, management of casefiles, storage of exhibits. Many forensic laboratories, from large multi-site organisations to smaller specialist companies, are now accredited.
UKAS accreditation includes the examination or analysis of:
Drugs, Accelerants, Glass, Paint
Toolmarks, Footwear, Vehicles
Body Fluids, Fibres and Particulates, Blood Patterns
