Lab Accreditation Program

The DPS Crime Lab Accreditation Program was created on September 1, 2003. During the 84th Legislative Session in 2015, the Texas Legislature passed SB-1287, which transferred the responsibility for accrediting crime laboratories from the Texas Department of Public Safety (“DPS”) to the Texas Forensic Science Commission (“Commission”) effective September 1, 2015, under Code of Criminal Procedure Chapter 38.01.

Please refer to the Texas Forensic Science Commission website for further updates.
