Case Study

- June 2016

Abstract: To further meet the needs of its customers, the Environmental Monitoring Laboratory (EML) of Edgewood Chemical Biological Center sought ISO 17025 accreditation. The laboratory helps the U.S. Department of Defense establish quality control requirements when testing for chemical warfare agents (CWA). In preparation for accreditation, EML created or modified more than 60 controlled documents. The laboratory became the first lab of its kind to achieve ISO 17025 accreditation for CWA in October 2014.
