May 8, 五星彩票, Frederick, MD - On May 5th 五星彩票, California’s State Water Resources Control Board announced the adoption of a new set of regulations designed to modernize the Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP). These new regulations will require accredited laboratories to implement the NELAC Institute (TNI) 2016 Standard, a nationally recognized standard that covers not only laboratories’ analytical methods, but a broader set of factors including the quality of equipment and supplies they use, and the training of laboratory staff. While some laboratories are already operating under the requirements of the TNI Standard, the majority of the facilities overseen by ELAP will need to undergo a transitionary process to ensure they comply with these new regulations
May 5, 五星彩票, Frederick, MD – In early 五星彩票, A2LA was awarded a three-year contract with the Department of Environmental Quality of the State of Louisiana, making them one of a small group of providers authorized to assess laboratories under the Louisiana Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (LELAP).

This provides confidence that data, much of which is submitted to the Department of Environmental Quality or the Department of Natural Resources, is produced using reliable methods.
Oneworld Accuracy, a Vancouver-based proficiency testing provider, recently contacted A2LA with a request to expand their scope of accreditation to cover their newly developed COVID-19 proficiency testing program under ISO/IEC 17043. Due to the severity of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, A2LA and Oneworld Accuracy immediately began working together to complete the scope expansion on an accelerated timeline, and the new scope was issued on April 17th. Proficiency testing (commonly called external quality assessment or EQA in the clinical realm) evaluates the analytical performance of participants by comparing it to pre-established clinical criteria via interlaboratory comparison. This process is critical to ensuring accurate laboratory testing methods and reliable test results. Oneworld Accuracy’s COVID-19 program is uniquely positioned to play a key role in the global effort to control the spread of coronavirus.
