This module is supplementary to the UKAS Academy ISO/IEC 17020:2012 Awareness course. Learners should only complete this module after attending the Awareness course in full.

It links into the requirements of the Forensic Science Regulator Code of Practice, ILAC G19/2022 and RG201 to further develop your understanding of the key considerations for demonstrating conformity.
