The Geosynthetic Accreditation Institute-Laboratory Accreditation
Program(GAI-LAP) is a test-by-test accreditation program based
on site audits and annual proficiency tests.  The program is
intended to insure that the specific laboratory is capable of
properly rendering the tests that they contract to perform.
THe essence of the program is to accredit geosynthetic testing
laboratories for performing consensus standardized test methods
insofar as equipment, documentation and testing protocol is concerned.
