American Board of Forensic Toxicology (ABFT) Accreditation

What is ABFT Accreditation?

ANAB and The American Board of Forensic Toxicology (ABFT) have formed a strategic alliance to provide formal recognition for conformance to the ABFT requirements.

Organizations wishing to be recognized for conforming to the ABFT requirements must also maintain accreditation to the ANAB ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation program.

Per ABFT requirements, the ABFT Forensic Toxicology Laboratory Accreditation Checklist is assessed in its entirety every 2 years. Once recognized, the ABFT logo is applied to Certificate and Scope of Accreditation documents.
