2023 Soil Comparison Proficiency Test

This test is designed to challenge the forensic trace evidence analyst or geologist that routinely characterizes and compares soil samples to determine whether two samples could have a common origin.  Samples consist of unhomogenized soil samples.   Analysts are asked to determine if there is an association or elimination between the samples.  All distributed samples are examined and compared by a court qualified forensic geologist to ensure homogeneity and composition of the test samples.   The test is being produced as a custom test and is not yet on the FTS Scope of Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17043:2010.   The samples will be distributed in September 2023, with a subscription deadline of November 15, 2022.
