2017 Part 1 - An Overview of Environmental Testing Laboratories' Quality System and Data Integrity Programs

Event Announcement

Tuesday, Feb 7, 2017

 

About this webinar:

Part 1 of a 4 part series. When you or your client have an environmental decision pending, whether it's a determination for regulatory compliance, extent of contamination, remediation status, background characterization, etc., you depend on a qualified environmental laboratory for your analytical test results.

Are all environmental laboratories equivalent and to be treated as a commodity? In a world driven by better, faster and cheaper, you need to be confident that your laboratory's quality and data integrity systems provide data suitable for making the correct decision.

This presentation provides an overview of environmental laboratory quality assurance & quality controls (QA/QC) and data integrity. It provides background information for selecting a laboratory, guidance for understanding the benefits and limitations of laboratory certifications, and your risks in a laboratory selection decision.

Topics Presented:

  • What is a laboratory quality system and its purpose?
  • What are typical QA/QC performed and their purpose?
  • What is data integrity?
  • What are unethical laboratory practices, what are the causes and how can it be prevented?
  • What does laboratory certification mean?
  • What are your risks in selecting a laboratory?

Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone that contracts laboratory services for environmental compliance testing.
  • Anyone making environmental decisions.
  • Anyone responsible for procuring environmental laboratory services.
  • Anyone sending samples to an environmental laboratory for testing.

A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation. At the conclusion of each webinar, you will be asked for your feedback and opinions for future webinar topics to be developed by TestAmerica.

February 7th
