    1. Scientific evidence in support of reduced culpability in adolescents - McGill University public survey

    2. Dear Potential Stakeholder, The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) is seeking feedback on a proposal by the ISO Member Body for Australia (SA) to create a new ISO Project Committee on the above subject. The purpose of this inquiry is consult with potential interested Canadian stakeholders to see if there is sufficient interest for ISO to undertake work on this subject and more importantly to commit to participate in the development of an International Standard on minimizing the risk of contamination in products used to collect and analyze biological material for forensic DNA purposes. The SCC values your feedback on this proposal. Please fill out the attached Stakeholder feedback survey found at the link below by no later than August 15th, 2012. http://scc.sondages-surveys.ca/s/nwip-forensic-analysis/ Purpose and justification The proposed Standard will provide guidance to manufacturers in procedures that will assist in minimizing human DNA contamination. It will benefit all users of the judicial system, members of the public, legal and forensic practitioners. Compliance to an accepted platform of protocols by manufacturers of forensic biology products ensures that forensic scientists can be confident of the results they are producing. It will have a direct bearing on the collection of forensic samples, forensic examinations, analyses, interpretations and opinion evidence in the courts and reduces the risk of flawed justice outcomes. Scope of proposed project The proposed new International Standard is aimed at setting particular criteria around which the consumables used in forensic DNA collection and analysis should be manufactured. This Standard specifies provisions for the production of products used in forensic DNA collection and analysis. Products covered by the scope of this Standard include consumables used for evidence collection (including those used in DNA kits), such as swabs, containers and packaging, and also products used in the analysis of DNA samples, such as tubes and other plastic ware, disposable laboratory coats, gloves, masks and other consumables. For more information, seek clarification or to express your interest in participating on a committee to develop a standard in this area, please contact Darryl Kingston, Program Manager, Global Standards Governance by: Email: dkingston@scc.ca Telephone: 613-238-3222 ext. 445 I have enclosed the proposal for the new work item – (English text only), as well as additional information about the benefits of standards and the Standards Council of Canada. If you have suggested stakeholders who may be interested in this topic please feel free to inform us and provide the appropriate contact details. Those working in associations if you could share among your colleagues and provide an industry perspective it would be greatly appreciated.

    3. Dear Colleague, The Scientific Working Group for Forensic Toxicology (SWGTOX) has identified you as someone interested in the field of forensic toxicology, and is soliciting your feedback on a draft document. The document is titled: Scientific Working Group for Forensic Toxicology (SWGTOX) Standard Practices for Method Validation in Forensic Toxicology. The document may be viewed on the SWGTOX website. http://www.swgtox.org/documents/Validation_public_comment.pdf Comments may be provided via the following link until August 17, 2012. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NQRX65J
