Both ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and the AR 3125 Forensic Accreditation Requirements documents have moved to less prescriptive, more performance-based requirements with an aspect of risk-based thinking to facilitate greater effectiveness and continuous improvement. This course will review specific requirements that incorporate the word risk as well as those requirements that foster a risk-based thinking approach. Risk will be defined and several risk-based thinking approaches and tools for identifying, assessing, addressing and monitoring risks will be presented. Participants will then apply these tools and their risk-based thinking knowledge and skills to several practical exercises.
