Case Study: Accreditation ensures reliability of paternity testing

Accreditation ensures reliability of paternity testing

UK Courts can ask for a scientific DNA paternity test to check the parentage of a child if parties cannot agree on whether a DNA test should be done. Paternity tests, instructed by a Court, can only be carried out in a laboratory that is accredited for this scope to ISO/IEC 17025.
