Auditing PCR Development Programs


ACLCA will audit the PCR programs against the Draft PCR Operators Standard. This standard has been accepted as an item of new business by ASTM-International. Once it has passed through the consensus process there, the ASTM standard will become the basis of ACLCA's conformity assessment.

If you are interested in becoming certified by ACLCA as a PCR program operator, please contact us at
