Changes to the TNI Laboratory Accreditation Standards
Module 1 – Proficiency Testing
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.
Each class covers the changes from the 2009 TNI Standard to the 2016 TNI Standard for a particular module. The class also includes implementation tips and examples. Module 1 covers Proficiency Testing.
Learning Outcome: For each class, attendees will be able to identify and have a good understanding of the changes to the 2016 TNI Environmental Laboratory Standard.
