Canada's NRC on Traceability
Defence lawyers need to convince the criminal justice system that "traceability" of all forensic measurements is a condition precedent to reliability. What does "traceability" mean and is it part of Canadian criminal law? What does the Canadian scientific community have to say about "traceability"? Why is the establishment of "calibration intervals" required to maintain "traceabilty"? Are "étalon" and "norme" the same thing? Are these concepts easier to understand in French?
