Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program
The State of California will soon become the first state in the USA to require testing of drinking water for the presence of microplastics. In order to do this, methods for gathering this data had to be attempted, studied and eventually standardized. The Moore Institute was proud to be one of many laboratories to test out these methods and help with the standardization process. Now, the state can move forward with the actual testing of drinking water.
MISSION: To implement a sustainable accreditation program that ensures laboratories generate environmental and public health data of known, consistent, and documented quality to meet stakeholder needs.
VISION: Through effective program implementation and continuous improvement of ELAP, California will utilize the highest quality scientific data as a foundation for its environmental and public health programs and decisions.
