(b) A laboratory testing DNA evidence should make available to the prosecution the information and material that the prosecutor must disclose to the defense pursuant to Standard 4.1, and to defense counsel the information and material that the defense must disclose to the prosecutor pursuant to that standard. (c) When an accrediting body receives notice of credible evidence of laboratory misconduct or serious negligence concerning DNA evidence at the testing laboratory, either as provided in subdivision (a) (vi) of this standard or through other means, it should audit laboratory procedures and cases that may have been affected by the misconduct or serious negligence and issue a written report. (a) DNA evidence should be tested and interpreted in a timely manner by qualified personnel using the policies and procedures adopted by the laboratory as provided in Standard 3.1. (b) Each step in the testing of DNA evidence and in the interpretation of the test results should be recorded contemporaneously in case notes. (c) The case notes should document all information necessary to allow an independent expert to evaluate the process used and the conclusions reached. (d) All case notes made and raw electronic data produced during testing should be preserved. (a) A summary of all DNA testing and data interpretation should be recorded promptly in a report. (b) The report should be sufficiently comprehensive so that an independent expert can identify the process used and the conclusions reached.
