The Integrated Chemists of the Philippines
in cooperation with
The PNP Crime Laboratory
is pleased to invite you to a 2-day Training-Workshop on:
Implementing QA/QC in Analytical Chemistry Laboratories
17-18 February 2014 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
PNP Multi-Purpose Hall, Camp Crame, Quezon City
The establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015 envisions a single market and production base: a highly competitive economic region, a region of equitable economic development, and a region that is fully integrated into the global economy. Analytical chemistry laboratories should set up the following important measures in preparation for ASEAN 2015: a system of standards, quality assurance, accreditation, and measurement. In addition, there is an urgent need to harmonise standards, technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures through their alignment with international practices, where applicable. All of these are crucial to promote greater efficiency and enhance cost effectiveness of production of intra-regional imports/exports.
This training workshop aims to prepare Philippine analytical chemistry laboratories for these challenges so that they can be at par with the best chemistry testing labs in the ASEAN. The program will cover topics on standards for competence in laboratory testing, calibration, inspection, and quality assurance/ quality control procedures.
