ISBN: 978-1-56395-481-8

The 16th edition of Standards for Relationship Testing Laboratories features new and revised requirements in areas such as employee qualification, facility monitoring of potentially fabricated documents, and the identification of non-chain of custody cases.

Significant changes in the 16th edition include:

  • The updated Quality Systems Essentials template has been incorporated into the 16th edition, including updated language and new sections on key concepts and key terms and examples of objective evidence.
  • The 16th edition has been expanded to allow for forensic genetic genealogy testing activities throughout the edition.
  • New standards have been created to allow individuals wishing to serve as a laboratory director or technical leader whose experience was not accrued in an AABB-accredited laboratory to petition AABB to determine if their experience would be equivalent.

RT Standards has been updated to include requirements specifically for traditional relationship testing statistics and non-traditional relationship testing statistics, better reflecting the current landscape of the field.
