» Scene of Crime Workshop

27 August, 2020

In order to comply with The Forensic Science Regulators Codes of Practice and Conduct, organisations undertaking Crime Scene Examination are expected to become accredited for this activity. To assist organisations in their preparations to meet this expectation, UKAS is holding a one-day virtual workshop to outline the requirements of ISO/IEC 17020:2012 and the associated publications used as part of the assessment.

This workshop will be run using our Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) platform so it's easy to learn from the safety of your home. Virtual workshops simulate the traditional learning experience so you will still benefit from practical sessions, group work and exercises. The attendance fee is £175 + VAT per person.The workshop is aimed at Quality Managers, Technical Managers and Practitioners who are taking the lead in their organisation’s progression toward gaining accreditation to ISO/IEC 17020:2012 for scene of crime activities and will include:
