Is their a Quality Assurance Manual Template that is available to small labs? We are a small municipal lab and do not have the resources to develop this from scratch.

James,

Go to Wisconsin or Indiana websites and find their environmental lab QA/QC manuals.  I have used them as a template for producing my own. http://dnr.wi.gov/org/es/science/lc/OUTREACH/IG/APPA-Quality%20Manual%20rev0%20Jul08.doc

This link is to a free guidance document on QAQC for the small lab and is a great guide to follow.  It is not a Quality Manual per se, but helps you in the process of building one.

 

The NELAC Institute is also in the process of creating a guidance document that helps the small lab put together a basic quality system and documentation....but it isn't quite ready.  Stay tuned!!
