ASCLD Glossary of Acronyms


The ASCLD Board of Directors asked the Executive Director to prepare a glossary of forensic organizations to help managers navigate the alphabet soup of acronyms that sometimes appear in correspondence and webpages.  The ASCLD Glossary of Acronyms, First Edition is a “one stop shop” of many forensic organizations and their acronyms.  The glossary includes a brief description and hyperlink, if available.   This document will be updated periodically.  If you have recommended edits, please contact the Executive Director at

The ASCLD Glossary of Acronyms is posted in the Manager’s Toolkit on the ASCLD Member site.
