Abstract
This workshop provides a summary of the Houston Forensic Science Center's blind quality control program, focusing on blind quality control and blind verification in the Firearms section. The presenters will share their experiences- successes and failures- to best inform other laboratories that are interested in starting similar programs. Participants will have the opportunity to process map their case workflow, identify challenges that might arise when implementing blind verifications or blind testing, and discuss options for making the program viable for different laboratories.
