Quality Standards in Non-Regulated Labs Working Group

Our working group is proposing a white paper that gives guidance in implementing quality standards in non-regulated labs. There are currently no government mandated quality standards for early research and the boundary between regulated and non-regulated environments is sometimes blurred or is subject to change. However, there are risks to not implementing quality standards and, if done correctly, implementation will not necessarily hinder research, but will result in more robust, reproducible data that can be trusted to make informed decisions and support programs or projects.
