We are Forensic Access

Forensic Access:
Forensic Excellence

Forensic Access was set up in 1986 to ensure that legal defence teams could access the same level of forensic science expertise as their counterparts in prosecution. Fast-forward 35 years and Forensic Access is a widely recognised market leader providing a breadth of forensic science services.

Our world-class team brings together scientific excellence with an incisive knowledge of the legal system and fluency in articulating often complex issues in a compelling way. Dedicated Casework Managers work alongside our scientists to streamline processes and make sure that reports are delivered on time and on budget.

Quality is at the heart of everything we do and all work is carried out to rigorous UKAS 17025:2017 accreditation, ensuring the validity and longevity of our findings.
