DoD Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (DoD ELAP)

On December 24, 2008, the Assistant Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Environment, Safety and Occupational Health) issued a memorandum establishing the DoD Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (DoD ELAP) and tasking the DoD Environmental Data Quality Workgroup (EDQW) with responsibility for implementing and providing oversight of the program.

Using third-party Accreditation Bodies (ABs), the DoD ELAP provides a unified DoD program through which laboratories can demonstrate competency and document conformance to the DoD Quality Systems Manual for Environmental Laboratories (DoD QSM).

For more information see DoD ELAP Fact Sheet .
