ELAP Webinar-13 - Implementing a Robust Data Integrity Program in an ELAP Lab
Generating good data requires a quality management system built upon a strong data integrity program. The TNI Standard contains a number of data integrity requirements to help ensure data is generated with a high level of integrity. This webinar will provide an understanding of these requirements and offer implementation ideas and tools to establish a proactive approach to data integrity. Obstacles to implementation and system vulnerabilities will be discussed.
