Abstract

As stated in the FSR Code of Conduct : Customers and providers shall ensure that any sample, packaging and/or collection kits they use are fit for purpose. This can be demonstrated by consumable manufacturers and kit assemblers meeting the requirements set out in the Publically Available Specification (PAS) 377:2012 “Specification for consumables used in the collection, preservation and processing of material for forensic analysis - Requirements for product, manufacturing and forensic kit assembly”.

Usage

This gives guidance on the requirements for any product used within forensic examinations of items, and so will be relevant for any areas in DII where items are examined or altered in any detail (whether digital material or not). Items relating to forensic ‘kits’ or products should not be procured unless they adhere to this standard.
