United States Department of Defense Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (DoD ELAP)
The Department of Defense Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (DoD ELAP) is designed to accredit laboratories that wish to test for Department of Defense environmental restoration programs. In order to perform testing after October 1, 2009, laboratories must meet the requirements of the DoD ELAP Quality Systems Manual for Environmental Laboratories. This manual is based on ISO/IEC 17025:2005, NELAC and specific Department of Defense requirements. Those with current DoD contracts must become accredited once their contract expires.
