The Laboratory Advisory Committee (LAC) is comprised of laboratory owners, managers and/or personnel. The LAC meets as necessary with meetings open to all laboratories participating in the QCS program.

Representation on the LAC is independent of a participating laboratory's size or service area. Each participating laboratory receives one vote when considering recommendations for revisions or additions to the auditing guidelines. The responsibilities of the LAC are to review the standards and auditing procedures outlined in the Auditing Procedures for Laboratories, making recommendations for revisions to the Audit Review Committee (ARC).

For more information on the LAC, please contact Steven Sievert (National DHIA Technical Services Director & QCS Manager) or Muril Niebuhr, Eastern Laboratory Services (LAC Chair).
