Celebrate innovation and sustainability for Lab Innovation’s 10th edition

Lab Innovations returns to the NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday 2nd & Thursday 3rd November 2022, bringing the entire laboratory science industry together for the 10th time – it’s set to be the celebration of the decade!

At the show, the industry will meet to launch its products and innovations to the UK’s leading gathering of lab professionals, suppliers, and manufacturers. Lab professionals across all sectors will be able to discover sustainable lab initiatives, secure the latest tech, join exciting free conferences to earn CPD points and explore new ways of future-proofing labs. Supported by some of the UK’s top science institutions, it is a key event for powering the business of science.

The Science Council will exhibiting again and will also be collaborating with UKAS to give a joint presentation, details of which are below:

Competence of the Labs and the skills of the people working in them

Learn from the Science Council and UKAS how maintaining high levels of competence in the Labs through UKAS accreditation and Science Council professional registration for practising scientists and science technicians builds and maintains high levels of trust and integrity in the science being delivered.

UKAS accreditation is awarded when a laboratory demonstrates its competence to perform specific activities.  This means that test results can be trusted, and measurements relied upon.

Through the Science Council, professional registration recognises the knowledge and experience of scientists and science technicians in the labs in addition any other qualifications held.  Professional registration captures on-the-job experience and shows the level of competence being delivered by the practising scientist and science technician.

Accreditation and registration demonstrates commitment to integrity, regard for public interest and responsibility for others.

This presentation will also explore how the established mechanisms such as accreditation and registration could be further utilised to enable increased sustainability within laboratory services
