NFSTC to Retire DNA Laboratory Audit Program

As of December 31, 2017, the National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC) will no longer provide DNA laboratory auditing services. NFSTC has been a provider of DNA audits for 15 years. In a recent release, the organziation stated, "We are grateful for our many friends and customers in the DNA community."

Why the change? The NFSTC says that over the past several years, the organization has experienced growth in many areas of business, allowing them to provide more training, consulting, and technology support to a wide variety of customers, including the Department of State and international agencies.

"The good news is there are more audit providers now than ever before. Check with accrediting bodies and regional providers for the services you need," wrote the NFSTC in their release.

If your laboratory is already scheduled for an audit between now and the end of the year, that work will proceed with no changes.
