Raw Data Integrity Webinar – 27 April 2021

This webinar is a collaboration between ILAC and WADA and will include the presentation of a case study by WADA and forensic experts demonstrating the manipulation and subsequent tracing of raw data in a laboratory setting. The presentation will highlight lessons learnt from this case study and how these may be applied in assessing and confirming the integrity of raw data in the future.

These lessons and the principles are likely to be applicable across all areas of laboratory (and inspection) activities where raw data is generated. The Webinar will be of interest to accreditation body staff and technical assessors participating in the assessment process and will also include a Q&A session with the forensic experts and WADA science personnel.

Zoom links will be provided to all confirmed delegates
24 hours prior to the start of the webinar. There is no cost to attend this webinar, but space is limited so register early!

As part of our long term collaboration, WADA is pleased to share with ILAC and its members a debrief of the complex cases we investigated and the lessons we learnt in order to strengthen analytical raw data integrity to guarantee the level of confidence we need in analytical testing.

So much relies upon raw data integrity that we need to ensure a high degree of protection of this essential component of our global activities.
