As more SDO published and OSAC Proposed Standards are added to the Registry, we want to better understand how they are being used, the challenges around standards implementation, and what support is needed to improve it. The OSAC Registry Implementation Survey is a tool we have used to collect this information on an annual basis. The first OSAC Registry Implementation Survey was released in 2021 (open June 10 - August 31) and the second in 2022 (open June 10 - August 31). Forensic science service providers (FSSPs) from across the country were encouraged to participate.
2022 OSAC Registry Implementation Survey
Assessed the state of implementation of 95 standards that were posted on the OSAC Registry through June 20221.
177 responses included in the data analysis. Of those, 128 FSSPs reported that their organization had fully or partially implemented at least one standard on the OSAC Registry.
