WHAT DOES THIS ACCREDITATION MEAN FOR OUR LABORATORY?
The obtention of ISO 17025 Accreditation means rigorous third-party evaluation of our quality management system and technical competence. The accrediting body proceeds to a thorough evaluation of our laboratory, namely to assess lab personnel technical aptitudes and its ability to execute an established management system.
The verifications occur on a regular basis to conserve this accredited status. The ISO 17025 accreditation can only be granted by an authorized certifying organization. Obtention of the accreditation means the laboratory has met all requirements pertaining to management and techniques contained within norm ISO 17025 and that the laboratory is thus deemed technically competent to deliver reliable results.
This international norm, jointly published by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) establishes a set of requirements which improve validity and reproducibility of laboratory results.
In accordance with requirements pertaining to ISO 17025 Accredited Laboratory competency, all of our laboratory activities are structured, managed and carried out with impartiality and confidentiality of information. Our Management is also committed to performing its activities in complete impartiality and confidentiality.
