In 2009 the U.S. National Research Council (NRC) released a report entitled “Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward”  (hereafter, “the Report”) to the Congress of the United States. It contained a broad overview of the status of forensic science in the United States along with several recommendations for improvement. The Report has generated significant discussion, and its recommendations, if adopted, would have broad reaching effects within the forensic science community, including the forensic audio community. In September 2009, the Scientific Working Group on Digital Evidence (SWGDE) published a position paper  on the Report, responding to each of the recommendations made therein. An overview of the Report, its effects, SWGDE’s response, and the SWGDE Audio Committee’s current projects will be presented.
