ISO Procedures

The North Carolina State Crime Lab and forensic laboratories across the country are moving to the ISO 17025, international standards that provide a global basis for laboratory accreditation in management and technical requirements. We welcome public comment on the new standards. Contact senior lab management to share your comments.

The official version of all documents exists on the Crime Laboratory's internal server. Any documents which are printed are considered to be uncontrolled.
