   Scientific Working Group for
        Forensic Document Examination

Farrell C. Shiver was the first Chairman of the Scientific Working Group for Forensic Document Examination (SWGDOC) Subcommittee on on Standard Operating Procedures and Terminology.  The subcommittee was primarily responsible for developing standardized procedures for handwriting examinations.  He also served on the Executive Committee of SWGDOC.

 

The Scientific Working Group for Forensic Document Examination was formed in 1997 under the sponsorship of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to promote standardization in procedures used in government laboratories.  Initial membership in SWGDOC included representative forensic document examiners from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Secret Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Internal Revenue Service, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, the U.S. Navy Criminal Investigation Service, as well representatives of the National Institute of Justice, and academia.  Membership was later expanded to include forensic document examiners from various state, local, and private laboratories.

 

Today SWGDOC continues to develop standards under the auspices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a task group of the ASTM.
