Effectively Resolving Deficiencies – Once and For All!!

The NELAC Institute, in cooperation with Analytical Excellence, Inc., will provide a 2-hour webinar on materials and techniques that laboratories, data users and assessors can use to successfully address the challenges posed during the audit process. A strong focus will be on eliminating report findings and capitalizing on assessment opportunities to improve the management system and operating performance.

Resolving negative findings in the laboratory quickly and effectively is critical to successfully closing an assessment, but the findings can also provide opportunities for continuous improvement, reducing costs and fostering efficiency. How does management assure that deficiencies are resolved, and their resolution provides value and benefit to project goals and operations long term?

This workshop is intended to be interactive. This workshop will focus on actual real life situations and assessment results using root cause analysis tools as well as a suggested process for addressing deficiencies.
