This Best Practice Manual (BPM) aims to provide a framework for procedures, quality principles, training processes and approaches to the forensic examination of textile fibres. This BPM can be used by Member laboratories of ENFSI and other forensic science laboratories to establish and maintain working practices in the field of forensic examination of fibres that will deliver reliable results, maximize the quality of the information obtained and produce robust evidence. The use of consistent methodology and the production of more comparable results will facilitate interchange of data between laboratories. The term BPM is used to reflect the scientifically accepted practices at the time of creation. The term BPM does not imply that the practices laid out in this manual are the only good practices used in the forensic field. In this series of ENFSI Practice Manuals the term BPM has been maintained for reasons of continuity and recognition.
