Certifications

  • Laboratory Certifications

    The Laboratory Certification Program operates under the authorization of the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act, 1976 PA 399, as amended (Act 399), and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to certify laboratories for the analysis of drinking water. All laboratories testing Michigan drinking water samples for regulatory and compliance monitoring must be certified by this program.

    The Laboratory Certification Program certifies laboratories to ensure that proper methods and quality control are used in the testing of drinking water samples. The certification process includes an extensive review of the applicant laboratory Quality Assurance Program Plan, Standard Operating Procedures, as well as an on-site audit of the facility and analytical data. Areas of certification include Bacteriology, Wet Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Inorganic Chemistry.

    The Drinking Water Laboratory Certification Program is now accepting applications for supplemental PFAS Certification for in-state laboratories with a due date of February 1, 2020.  Applications for out of state laboratories will be sent out on or around February 1, 2020 and will have a due date of March 15, 2020.  Contact Gregg Lundy at 517-335-9219 or lundyg@michigan.gov to request an application or if you have any questions.
