AIHA-LAP, LLC is seeking qualified volunteers to fill positions on the Analytical Accreditation Board (AAB) and
the Technical Advisory Panel (TAP) to serve terms beginning in January 2012. The AAB oversees the governance
and processes related to laboratory accreditation, including responsibility for approving applications submitted
for accreditation and reaccreditation once site assessments are conducted. AAB members are also responsible
for approving policy changes and participating on ad
hoc task forces. TAP members advise the staff and AAB
on technical laboratory matters and review 20 percent of
all accreditation applications for the major programs: industrial hygiene, environmental lead, and environmental
microbiology. TAP members conduct a thorough assessment of the accreditation process steps to ensure conformance with policies and technical requirements.
