IFSA members are proud to release Minimum Requirements Documents for Forensic Document Examination and. IFSA recognises the importance of a quality management framework in forensic laboratories to provide quality and standardised results, be it procedures undertaken in the field or in the laboratory. These MRDs are meant to act as a start-up guide for emerging forensic laboratories to quickly establish their quality management system and scientific/technical capabilities. The two new documents in the MRD series represent a significant body of work for scientific working groups and experts from the six regional forensic science networks, as well as IFSA strategic partners, who all made valuable contributions during the various rounds of consultation. The final MRDs presented in this series would not be possible without the involvement of all.
