Five laboratories of the Institute of Forensic Sciences of the State Attorney General Office (FGE) were re-accredited by the National Accreditation Council ANAB (for its acronym in English), with which the scientific area that investigates crimes in the agency, maintains its international status.

The evaluation carried out in the Prosecutor’s Office includes the Forensic Genetics Laboratory, Questioned Documents; Forensic Ballistics; Lophoscopy, and Criminalistics, which endorses the work of specialists in law, criminalistics, chemistry, and forensic genetics who work in these areas and consolidates them as one of the most specialized in the Peninsula.

“The technical leaders who make up these areas have maintained constant training, which contributes to maintaining high levels of operation and in parallel being prepared to pass the evaluations successfully, which reaffirms good practices in the processes,” reported the FGE.

The general director of the Institute of Forensic Sciences, José Manuel Flores Acosta, stressed that, after the new certification, the five laboratories have already achieved their second re-accreditation after an in-person and remote evaluation process in which the specialists passed stages that they include the delivery of reports, examinations and analysis of methods, techniques, and supervision of procedures.

Since its first accreditation in 2018, with the forensic genetics laboratory, the FGE has promoted excellence in the expert opinions issued by the Institute, which is why significant efforts have been made to maintain the accreditations of the five laboratories and guarantee the scientific truth in its results so that they have international validity.
