ELAP 25 - TNI Standard Interpretations for a CA ELAP Lab


The California State Water Resources Board has approved the Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP) regulations for accrediting environmental laboratories. This free 90-minute live webinar, the 25th in a series from the International Accreditation Service (IAS), will discuss Standard Interpretation Requests (SIRs) pertaining to the 2016 TNI Standard.

The 2016 TNI Standard contains requirements that laboratories must comply with. Sometimes, the language can be open to interpretation. Stakeholders often submit Standard Interpretation Requests (SIRs) to TNI for clarification. This webinar will review the most helpful, important, and applicable SIRs to assist laboratories to better understand the requirements and various ways to adhere to the Standard. This webinar will be useful to laboratory management, supervisors, and quality assurance staff.
