BCIT Forensic DNA Lab is Now Accredited!

Posted by: Steen Hartsen | July 5, 2016

As of July 5th, 2016 the BCIT Forensic DNA Laboratory has been accredited to two different ISO standards through the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). The lab has been granted accreditation for both the ISO 17025 and CAN-P-1548 standards. This allows the lab to handle forensic casework within our scope of accreditation, and is the same level of accreditation that the RCMP Forensic DNA lab possesses. The journey to accreditation has been a long, but ultimately rewarding, experience, and we look forward to working with local stakeholders to help ease the burden of case backlogs.
