ORA Laboratory Manual

Lab Manual Cover


The Laboratory Manual is a reference manual for FDA personnel. It provides FDA personnel with information on internal procedures to be used as an agency policy for testing consumer products, training of laboratory staff, report writing, safety, research, review of private laboratory reports and court testimony. (Formerly: Laboratory Procedure Manual)


We have recently redesigned the FDA Web Site.  As a result, some Web links (URLs) embedded within the manual are no longer valid.  If you find a link that does not work, please try searching for the document using the document title.  For more assistance, go to Contact FDA.
