Forensic science unit procedures

The Forensic Science Unit was set up in 1990 and has been a member of the ENFSI (European Network of Forensic Science www.enfsi.eu) since 2005. It was in that same year, 2006, where the Quality Management System began to be introduced. The following processes are currently certified or accredited:

PROCESSES CERTIFIED PURSUANT TO THE AENOR UNE-EN ISO 9001:2008 STANDARD AENOR

The current status of the Forensic Policy accreditations is available by clicking the following link

On the other hand, other processes are currently being developed to be certified and/or accredited in the near future.

Those procedures are related to the planning of the quality of the tests and their control, the processing of DNA cases, the processing of identification cases, the processing of palm & fingerprint and physiognomic features comparison systems, receipt, validation and distribution of reports and evidence, the management of equipment and facilities and good housekeeping practices as a measure to guarantee the quality of the processing performed, the use of the space, improving efficiency and improving safety.
