Babcock Laboratories, Inc.
Lab Accreditation in California:
There's a New Team In Town
Last year, authority over the State's Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP) transferred from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB). The move had an impact on all analytical testing and environmental monitoring in the state, as every lab which performs environmental testing maintains their accreditation through the ELAP.
The presentation will highlight the changes in the new organizational structure of ELAP and detail the challenges and opportunities facing program as it moves forward.
