The Commission shall recognize an accrediting body under this
section if the Commission determines that the accrediting body:
  (1) issues an accreditation that is accepted throughout
the relevant scientific community and appropriate or available to
a laboratory;
  (2) has established adequate accreditation criteria
reasonably likely to ensure trustworthy forensic analysis;
  (3) requires a periodic competency audit or review
of the personnel, facilities, and procedures employed by a laboratory
to conduct a forensic analysis; and
  (4) withholds, grants, or withdraws its accreditation
of a laboratory based on its own determination of a reasonable likelihood
of meaningful corrective action for each deficiency noted during the
periodic audit or review.
