Forensic services conduct studies that play an essential role in crime investigation, anti-terrorism, victims’ identification, filiation studies (paternity, illegal adoption, burial pits, etc.). The ongoing exchange of information on forensic evidence among countries highlights the need to establish common standards for the providers of these services. International and European forensic organisations rely on accreditation for this kind of activities, which are pivotal in the fight against crime.
