Comments Invited on Recommended Changes to Volume 1 of the TNI Field Standards - Webinar to be Held February 19, 2021 at 1pm Eastern

Date Posted: 2-1-2021

The TNI Field Activities Expert Committee (FAC) has reviewed Volume 1 of the 2014 TNI Field Standards (General Requirements for Field Sampling and Measurement Organizations). The purpose of the review was to determine if there were any needed changes/improvements to the current Standard. One major change to the Standard will include the shift from ISO/IEC 17025:2005 language to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 language. The Committee will be holding a public webinar for feedback on Committee suggested changes/improvements and to gather input on other improvements that can be made to Volume 1 of the 2014 TNI Field Standards. The public webinar will highlight (1) additions the Committee would like to make to the Standard, (2) ideas the Committee is considering that they would like more feedback on, (3) the impact that ISO/IEC 17025:2017 has on the Standard and (4) a list of items the Committee plans to keep from the 2014 TNI Volume 1 Standard and add to the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 language (will be shared on screen during the webinar).
