TNI Publishes Position Statement on Small Laboratory Quality Systems

Date Posted: 1-24-2014

TNI believes every environmental laboratory, regardless of its size, should operate with an effective quality system.  The TNI Standard, which is based on the ISO/IEC (International Organization for Standardization) 17011 and 17025 Standards, sets forth the principles and practices of a laboratory quality system applicable to both large and small laboratories. Implementation of the TNI Laboratory Standard benefits small laboratories by increasing confidence in their data, improving the quality of their overall analytical processes, and improving defensibility of their data.

A Position Statement that provides more information about this topic has been approved by TNI's Advocacy Committee and endorsed by the Board of Directors.
