THE ASSOCIATION OF FORENSIC SCIENCE PROVIDERS
The Association is an independent, representative body which seeks by its activities to facilitate the effective delivery of justice and promote public confidence in forensic science. The AFSP was constituted on 1 July 2010 with the following mission and vision statements:
To represent the common views of the providers of independent (i.e. non-police) forensic science within the United Kingdom and Ireland with regard to the maintenance and development of quality and best practice in forensic science and expert opinion in support of the justice system, from scene to court.
To be the unified, objective, informed voice of practical forensic science provision in order to best support the interests of the criminal justice system through a partnership approach.
