SCCWRP will host the State of California’s Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP) Expert Review Panel during its first meeting May 17-19.
During the first day of the meeting, which the public is welcome to attend, the Panel will be hearing presentations about the program prior to deliberations. On Day 2, the Panel will go into closed session to deliberate, and then publicly report out on its deliberations on Day 3.
California’s accreditation process is designed to ensure that the State’s drinking water, wastewater, shellfish, food and hazardous waste programs have access to consistent, high-quality data. All California environmental testing laboratories are required to go through this accreditation process prior to providing analytical data used for state regulatory purposes.
