OSAC offers a variety of ways for members, affiliates, and other experts in the forensic science community to participate in the standards advancement process.
Past chair of OSAC’s Legal Resource Committee, Judge Christopher Plourd, is leading efforts to develop a legal education standard for forensic science practitioners. This proposed standard, Standard Practice for Forensic Science Practitioner and Forensic Science Service Provider Training on Legal Issues, will identify the recurring and important legal issues that forensic practitioners and forensic science service providers should be aware of and trained on.
If you are a forensic science practitioner within OSAC and would like to be on this task group, please email Judge Plourd (christopher.plourd [at] imperial.courts.ca.gov (christopher[dot]plourd[at]imperial[dot]courts[dot]ca[dot]gov)) briefly describing your interest and your background in education and training within the forensic science discipline. You do not have to be a member of ASTM to be a member of this task group.
Read the latest OSAC Standards Bulletin to learn more about the forensic science standards under development and provide your feedback on the standards under consideration for the Registry and open for comment at SDOs.
Tell us your standards story – how you or your organization are benefiting from implementing the OSAC Registry approved standards – to be featured in a news story.
Apply to join OSAC and help develop the standards needed for your discipline.
