Scope of the inquiry

The Committee is conducting an inquiry into forensic science. The inquiry will cover four broad areas:

  • the forensic science research landscape,
  • the use of forensic science in the Criminal Justice System,
  • standards and regulation, and
  • digital forensics.

The inquiry will look at what new research programmes are needed in forensic science; the level of understanding within the criminal justice system and what routes are available to improve understanding; the performance of the market for forensic services in the UK; and the detection, recovery, integrity, storage and interpretation of evidence from digital devices and networks.
