ISO/IEC 17043 Accreditation

In November 2017 we were awarded accreditation to “ISO/IEC 17043:2010 Conformity assessment — General requirements for proficiency testing” for our Body Fluids Identification Scheme (for identification of blood, semen and saliva on swatches of material and exhibits). You can see the scope of the accreditation on the UKAS (UK’s accreditation body) website: Forensic Proficiency Testing Services ISO 17043 Accreditation.
