Mettler-Toledo offers a new on-demand webinar entitled “Weighing Accuracy Matters In the Court of Law”. A panel of industry experts explains Good Weighing Practice™ for forensic laboratories to enable them to comply with recent changes in industry regulations and document requirements.

Recent changes in regulations and documentation requirements are presenting new challenges to crime labs in the United States. METTLER TOLEDO has brought a panel of industry experts together for an exclusive webinar on Good Weighing Practice™ for forensic laboratories.

This webinar features expert speakers from the fields of criminal law and metrology. Together, they provide insights into the newly required calculation and documentation of measurement uncertainty. Against the backdrop of the Confrontation Clause to the Sixth Amendment, the implications for laboratories are greater than ever. Now, laboratory technicians could possibly be challenged in court to provide documented proof of the validity of the weighing results.

This webinar will educate participants on how to provide documented proof of measuring results pertaining to testimonial evidence. It will outline the benefits of implementing risk management as part of the inventory of weighing equipment. And finally, this webinar illustrates how METTLER TOLEDO can help assure accurate weighing results of evidence.

 Industry experts include Jack Wallace, Quality Assurance Supervisor at Ventura County Sherriff’s Department, Dr. Klaus Fritsch, Compliance Manager for Laboratory & Weighing Technologies at METTLER TOLEDO, and Stephen Wilent, Laboratory Solutions Consultant at METTLER TOLEDO.
