Environmental laboratories provide analytical testing support for state programs including drinking water, wastewater, solid waste and air quality.
As a part of its mission, the Bureau of Public Health Laboratories is charged with protecting the public health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the State of Florida, as well as its visitors, from the hazards of improper performance of environmental laboratory tests through regulating environmental laboratories.

In fulfillment of this mission, the Environmental Laboratory Certification Program seeks to assure the acceptable quality, reliability and validity of testing results on which environmental decisions are made by certifying laboratories that test drinking water, wastewater, solid and hazardous waste and other types of environmental samples in accordance with the quality standards of the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (NELAP).
