The Organization of Scientific Area Committees for Forensic Science (OSAC) is excited to announce two Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) documents have been added to the OSAC Registry. The OSAC Registry serves as a trusted repository of high-quality, science-based standards and guidelines for the practice of forensic science. To be placed on the Registry, a standard or guideline must have been developed using a consensus-based process and passed the OSAC technical merit review process by forensic practitioners, academic researchers, statisticians, and measurement scientists.
The two latest OSAC Registry Approved documents include:
These are the first documents from OSAC’s Disaster Victim Identification Subcommittee to be placed on the OSAC Registry and now bring the total number of Registry documents to 19. In addition to facilitating the development of high-quality standards, OSAC also encourages the widespread implementation of the documents listed on the Registry throughout the forensic science community.
