Application of ISO 17025 with Inter-Laboratory Testing

Benjamin Ajax-Lewis


Supervised by Michael Daley; Moderated by Alun D Preece

ISO 17025:2005 "General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories" for the first time is being enforced on Digital Forensic laboratories forcing them to test and validate the forensic tools and methods they use.

I want to streamline the Integration of ISO 17025 into today's digital forensic Laboratories so that my research can be used to help police forces prove that the tools they use are backed up by scientific research by running proficiency tests following the ISO 17025 standard that will be enforced onto the UK police departments as of October 2017.
