Analytical data produced for regulatory compliance must meet many state and federal requirements. Laboratories conducting analyses for compliance purposes are required to be accredited and regularly demonstrate their qualifications and performance. One of the requirements of becoming an accredited laboratory is to develop and maintain Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for all activities in the laboratory that are involved in producing analytical data.
During this 3 hour live online “Laboratory SOPs – Best Practices” workshop we will explain what information should be included in Laboratory SOPs and what language to use to best describe the lab processes.
