American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors / Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB): Excellent crime labs are built on excellent science. And excellent forensic scientists ask the hard questions. They don’t miss details. They specialize in the overlooked and underestimated – because a good scientist knows that details matter. At ASCLD/LAB, we couldn’t agree more.

The American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board is a not-for-profit corporation specializing in the accreditation of public and private crime laboratories. Since 1982, we have been committed to the ongoing support, education and oversight of facilities striving for excellence in forensic analysis.

Based in Garner, North Carolina, ASCLD/LAB is proud to have 30 plus years of experience accrediting federal, state and local crime laboratories throughout the United States, as well as forensic laboratories in various additional countries. We understand what it means to work in an accredited laboratory since our professional staff have over 300 years of collective experience working in accredited laboratories.

We offer an enhanced ISO program of Forensic Laboratory Accreditation for both forensic testing disciplines and breath alcohol calibration, based on ISO/IEC 17025 and enhanced by ASCLD/LAB-International Supplemental Requirements. Our accreditation of testing labs is recognized by both the Inter American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).

Count on ASCLD/LAB to be your partner in ensuring quality operations and promoting the fair, objective application of justice. It is, after all, the only thing we do.
