    This interactive workshop is designed to fulfill the annual data integrity and ethics training requirement as per the NELAC 2003 and TNI Standards and FDEP’s DEP-SOP-001/01 FT 1000. Training includes discussion regarding all data integrity procedures, documentation, and in-depth data monitoring. Key topics will include management responsibilities, the need of an organizational mission and its relationship to the critical need for honesty and full disclosure in all analytical reporting. Specific examples of breaches of ethical behavior will also be discussed including improper data manipulations, adjustments of instrument time clock, and inappropriate changes in concentrations of standards, etc.  We will also have case studies, exercises and interactive discussions on ethics and data integrity throughout the workshop.
