PROFILE

Forensic Access – a highly respected independent provider of forensic science expertise in the UK and overseas.

Forensic Access has a longevity and a legacy to be proud of. Formed in 1986 as an independent supplier of quality forensic science services, we have built an enviable reputation for our work in many different sectors providing investigative and analytical forensic science, consultancy (and project work), training and quality management services. We remain today, independent: the company is a privately owned, Limited company, with no institutional investors and, because we truly focus on science we will work for any sector of the Criminal Justice System (prosecution and defence), as well as for other Government Departments (including Local Authorities), in Civil Law cases, industry and private individuals. We work in the UK and overseas and are the chosen “partner” for highly sensitive work within the police service and other Government organisations. We have a Board of Directors, a management team, employed scientists and administration staff plus a long list of highly experienced consultants and, what we call “associates”: other companies to which we contract work. Our aim is to deliver safe and sustainable forensic science evidence to the Courts and other customers.

The Forensic Access Reputation

Commitment to independence: we are very proud of our independence and we feel that it is vital that the Criminal Justice System in the UK has a forensic provider, who is genuinely independent of, for example, the Home Office, the police, the judiciary and mainstream “prosecution” forensic providers. This independence allows us to offer totally impartial, objective, quality forensic advice, to a broad range of organisations.

Truly focussing on the science: whether in criminal case work or private work. Part of our recruitment policy is to recruit scientists who will focus on the scientific facts, and, in making interpretations and forming opinions, based on those facts, will not be swayed by the organisation or sector “paying the bill”. We will remain totally impartial and objective.

Recruitment policy: we only recruit experienced forensic scientists who we know, trust and respect for their experience, skills and integrity. This is fundamental to our work.
