DOD ELAP QSM Update

Tuesday, July 21, 2015 - 1:30 P.M. Eastern

About this webinar:

The Quality Systems Manual (QSM Version 5.0) consolidates DoD and DOE analytical requirements for all laboratories, national or international, working on installation restoration (IR) projects. The QSM is based on ISO-17025:2005 for Laboratory Competence, and the NELAC Institute (TNI) 2009 Standard. QSM Version 5.0 includes some significant analytical changes from earlier versions of the QSM that everyone involved in the program need to be aware of. A comprehensive understanding of the QSM is essential to both the prime contractor and the laboratory for the successful execution of projects. The purpose of this webinar is to share vital information to assist TestAmerica’s clients, fitting the laboratory’s capabilities to the best analytical approach for their data quality objectives.
