Members of the OSAC Quality Infrastructure Committee (July 2019)

The Quality Infrastructure Committee assembles and updates a Forensic Science Code of Practice, provides guidance on quality issues, and provides impact statements that inform agency management about how specific standards may affect laboratory operations. It also works with outside standards development organizations and accrediting bodies as needed.
