Accreditation for Forensic Science Testing Laboratories

ANAB accredits Forensic Science Testing Laboratories to ISO/IEC 17025. Demand for accredited forensic science service providers is growing worldwide as scrutiny and expectations increases. In 2009, the National Academy of Sciences recommended mandatory accreditation of all forensic science laboratories and facilities (public or private). In 2016, the National Commission on Forensic Science echoed this recommendation.

ANAB Forensic Science Testing accreditation programs apply to providers who perform testing activities in a variety of forensic disciplines. To view a list of disciplines for which accreditation is offered click here.
