Thank you all for the replies.  Happy to see more if others are willing.

I appreciate the speedy information.


We are not ANAB accredited in GSR/DD.  We chose to remove it from our scope 2 cycles ago.  However, we still perform the traditional work. 

We issue standard lab reports but on alternate letterhead without ANAB logo.  We also add this disclaimer to report verbiage:  "Please note, gunshot residue examinations are not covered under the Forensic Laboratory’s scope of accreditation."

same with Richard for Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
For SWIFS in Dallas County:

  • Yes ANAB Accredited
  • Leica Laser with a panel that the muzzle of the gun goes through to allow for measuring off to the side of the firearm
  • U of M was done in-house
ANAB accredited, laser, and in-house UM.  The stats aren't too difficult and you can use the same template that you do for barrel/overall length.
ANAB accredited, we use a laser for measurements, and the uncertainty of measurement was completed in-house.

Hi All,
I am in need of some feedback and would appreciate any info you would be willing to share.

1.) Is your lab ACCREDITED via ANAB for distance determination? If yes...
2.) What measurement process do you use such as (laser, tape measure, or other)
3.) Did you run our own stats and complete the Uncertainty Budget in-house or did you hire someone?

If this is better posted as a Poll, happy to do so.

Many thanks,
Kim James
