The Accreditation of Forensic Laboratories as Component of Realizing the European Forensic Science 2020 Concept
The success of mutually recognising evidence, among others, is provided by the introduction of common standards. In the interest of the regulated and scheduled implementation of the harmonisation process, the Council of the European Union made a decision on the ideas of ‘The Vision for European Forensic Science 2020’ including the creation of a European Forensic Science Area and the development of forensic science infrastructure in Europe (hereafter: EFSA 2020). This paper analyses the effects of the EFSA 2020 decision on the accreditation of forensic laboratories.
