Standards: The Not-So-Missing Link

Webinar on standards development and its application to forensic science!

Everyone involved in forensics at any level - practitioners, laboratory personnel, law enforcement, judges, attorneys, subject matter experts, forensic science students and so on - needs a solid grasp of how consensus-based standards support forensic science applications.

As part of a cooperative agreement with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) has created a new video to help address the need for training related to forensic science standards. 

Titled "Standards: The Not-So-Missing Link", this video is the basis for a webinar that will be  held on July 21, 2022 at 3:00 PM ET. In addition to the video, each webinar will include a 'live' Q & A session after the training video. Participants will have the opportunity to expand their learning by sharing ideas and comments. After July, the video will be available online through the AAFS website. Both the webinars and the online video are free of charge. 

Attend the webinar and watch the video to discover:

  • The world of national and international standards
  • How forensic science consensus-standards are developed
  • The importance of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
  • The link between consensus-based forensic science standards and the Registry of forensic standards created by the Organization of Scientific Area Committees  (OSAC) for Forensic Science
  • Examples of published forensic standards appearing on the OSAC Registry resources, and contacts available to you

Attend one of the webinars! Explore this fascinating topic! Get engaged in the standards development process!
