Changes to the TNI Laboratory Accreditation Standard


The 2016 TNI laboratory accreditation standard is the result of efforts to continually improve the requirements. This standard clarifies the proficiency testing requirements, improves the sections on method validation, instrument calibration and detection/quantitation limits for chemistry and contains completely rewritten sections for microbiology and radiochemistry.

This training series consists of the four classes listed below. Note that classes that have already completed will be crossed-out in the list below and unavailable for registration; completed classes will be available for purchase as a recorded webcast at a later date.
