Legal Chain of Custody (CoC) Protocol – “Bullet proof your work.”
(With support and inputs from Dr. Court Sandau, PhD, Chemistry Matters Inc.)
For those of us involved in Emergency Response and Environmental Forensic work we often come across situations where Legal protocols need to be followed – thus a Legal Chain of Custody (CoC) comes into play.
Tips from the Field:
Lastly, confidentiality is the key – put up firewalls with your teams, limit who can access information. We name all our Legal projects randomly so there is no way for anyone to know a location, LSD, facility, etc. This is a potential litigious environment so Bullet proof it all along the way.
