About the Laboratory
The EFÉ was established as the Forensic Science Laboratory in 1975 and is accredited by the Irish National Accreditation Board to ISO 17025. Laboratory staff consists of scientists, analysts and support personnel who are all civil servants.
We provide scientific assistance to agencies involved in criminal investigation, mainly An Garda Síochána.
We also provide assistance to other agencies e.g. the Garda Ombudsman (GSOC), Military Police, Customs & Excise and the Department of Agriculture.
The Laboratory recently received certification in the Excellence through People 1000:2012 scheme. Read more...
