This Soils Bulletin sets out guidelines for quality management in soil and plant laboratories for the use of heads and staff of laboratories aiming at improving laboratory performance. The Bulletin introduces a number of basic measures to be adopted in a laboratory regarding, among others, standard operating procedures (protocols), organization and personnel, facilities and safety, equipment and working materials, analytical or testing systems and basic statistical tools, quality control and reporting and filing of results.
