FCN Quality

Quality's mission, on behalf of the FCN community, is to achieve and maintain quality service with efficient, standardised processes, and to act as a single voice with key standards and accreditation stakeholders.

This will be crucial in helping the FCN community meet challenges around quality and accreditation, pace of technological change and increasing demand, and in and creating a cohesive forensic science landscape.

To achieve this mission, Quality will provide products and services to the FCN community under the following four service headings and as described in more detail below.

Quality in action
Quality, as with most elements of the FCN core team, is only beginning to take shape now as resources are recruited. However, supported by the broader Transforming Forensics Programme and the FCN community itself, Quality is already delivering benefits. Four existing examples demonstrating the way that Quality will operate are: knowledge bases, fingerprints, CSIs and digital forensics.

Other FCN service pillars

Identifying and exploiting opportunities so members can meet future challenges by having the people, knowledge, skills and specialist tools and capabilities they will need.
Maximising resilience and effectiveness through the design, introduction and maintenance of new ICT platforms, tools, operating models and business change support.
Designing, developing and maintaining a sustainable and forward-looking commercial marketplace for both traditional and digital forensic science
