ASGi Recommends: Use NELAP Labs for environmental testing

What is NELAP?

NELAP is the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program housed within The NELAC Institute (TNI), a 501c3 non-profit organization.

NELAP adopts standards (e.g. rules) that are based on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and are developed through a consensus process.

Oversight is provided by the NELAP Board which consists of one representative and one alternate from each of the 13 currently recognized accreditation bodies.

What is an Accreditation Body (AB)?

Accreditation body is an ISO term that refers to organizations that have the responsibility for granting accreditations. Under NELAP, accreditation bodies must be offices within a territory, state or federal agency.

The independent US state environmental laboratory accreditation programs and their counterparts in other state or federal agencies are all accreditation bodies; however, not all accreditation bodies are NELAP-recognized.

In order to gain recognition from NELAP, an organization must apply and must demonstrate compliance with the approved standard.
