OSAC Registry Checklists
Tuesday, February 14, 2023. 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM. CE Hours: 3.5
Forensic science service providers will benefit from additional resources that are available to facilitate OSAC Registry implementation efforts (i.e., checklists) as part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology-American Academy of Forensic Sciences (NIST-AAFS) Collaborative Agreement.
In this interdisciplinary symposium, checklists to document objective evidence of conformance, progress toward implementation, and auditing use will be explained. Insights regarding checklist development, beta-testing, delivery, and versioning will be presented. Collaborations with quality management personnel will be explored, and the practical use of checklists within a forensic service provider will be discussed.
During this interdisciplinary symposium, the benefits of checklist use will be presented. Free access to this resource will be provided, and the practical use of these flexible tools will be explained from the perspective of the developers, providers, and other stakeholders. This special session will include instructions regarding the use of checklists for standards on the OSAC Registry, integration in the quality management system, and practical advice regarding their use. This session will also include an interactive session and panel discussion to provide feedback, ask questions, and gain insight from FSPs that are using the checklists.
