Netherlands Forensic Institute
It is an autonomous division of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice and falls under the Directorate-General for the Administration of Justice and Law Enforcement.
On 30 July 1945, the government decided to set up a Justice Laboratory. Three years later, on 4 November 1948, the laboratory became a department of the Ministry of Justice.
A similar institution was founded in 1951: Gerechtelijk Geneeskundig Laboratorium (Judicial Medical Laboratory), which was later renamed Laboratorium voor Gerechtelijke Pathologie Laboratory for Judicial Pathology.
On 1 November 1999, the two laboratories merged into to the Nederlands Forensisch Instituut (Netherlands Forensic Institute).
