Our environmental analytical laboratory has recently undergone several audits during which the topic of Risk Assessment has been discussed. We are following the guidance of our accreditation programs: AIHA LAP and/or State ELAP programs. States that accredit laboratories follow The NELAC Institute (TNI) 2009 or 2016 standard that has been adopted by their State legislatures. AIHA LAP follows the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Standard.


Within each of these standards is language that addresses the risks to analytical laboratories.


Besides the laboratory safety aspect of risk assessment, there is the business side of the house. Are there any members of DCHAS that have come across this topic within their own commercial analytical laboratories?


How does ACS policy on RAMP used outside the academia?


Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
