Extremely dynamic development of forensic genetics requires cooperation of the professional bodies and institutions in order to make the best use of technological progress for the public good. The need for the high quality of DNA testing for justice and law enforcement in Poland forces the necessity of standardization in this area based on norms and legal Polish as well as European requirements. Among them the most crucial is the implementation of PN-EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard and the fulfilment of the requirements of the DAB-10 (PCA) document. Regardless of this, an important factor guaranteeing the competence of research personnel is the speciality in the field of laboratory forensic genetics. In the context of standardization a particularly significant are also research guidelines and recommendations that are developed and published by Teams of Experts considering their professional experience as well as widely recognized international recommendations. The aim is to provide high-quality genetic research in forensics, both in personal identification as well as kinship determination in Poland.
