Presentation Title: ISO 9001 QMS for Forensics

This presentation explores the application of ISO 9000:2015 and ISO 9001:2015 to implementation of a quality management system (QMS) to a small forensics laboratory. A QMS is focused on delivering the best product to the customer and focuses on continuous improvement of the process. The work of the forensic examiner requires development and execution of a risk-based process approach. The forensic examiner’s loyalty is to the evidence rather that to the person or entity that retains them. The quality principals defined in ISO 9000:2015 must be focused on both the retaining entity and the evidence.
