How to Work With Us

Whether you are new to standards or an expert working in the field, OSAC offers a variety of ways to engage:

  • Stay informed. Join our email list to get news and updates on standards moving through the OSAC Registry and SDO development processes. Also follow us on LinkedIn for OSAC news and updates.
  • Share your expertise and input. Review and comment on standards being considered for the OSAC Registry and those open for comment at SDOs. 
  • Participate in standards development. If you have relevant experience, apply to join OSAC as a member or affiliate to draft and review standards. You can also participate in the Scientific & Technical Review process by serving as a subject matter expert to review a single OSAC Proposed Standard.
  • Implement standards on the OSAC Registry. Standards are only beneficial if they are used! You can start by implementing just one standard in one discipline - the key is to just get started. Learn more about implementation and help demonstrate your impact by completing and sending us a declaration form.
  • Help other forensic science service providers on their implementation journey. Be a resource for other organizations and participate on OSAC's Implementer Cohort Task Group. Your organization can also volunteer to be a mentor to others.
