Oregon Environmental Laboratory Association.
Mission statement:

The Association shall seek to bring together organizations and individuals interested in the environmental laboratory industry in a common forum, to provide reliable information about environmental laboratories to the public, to speak with a unified voice on issues of importance to the industry, and to direct these activities at the informational needs of environmental laboratories, scientists, governmental legislative bodies and agencies, Oregon business organizations and the public at large.


OELA Board members Bennett Osborne and Jan Wilson attended the January  NELAC Institute (TNI) meeting in Southern California on behalf of the OELA.  As of now it looks like we can expect the new TNI Standards to take effect by July 2010.  These standards are available on the TNI website (http://www.nelac-institute.org/aboutus.php) and represent the first change to the NELAC Standards since 2003.  While you are at the new TNI website you should also check out the most recent TNI Newsletter.
