ISO 17025 is the international standard for the technical competence of calibration and testing laboratories. It also demonstrates the laboratory’s capabilities in areas such as trained and qualified staff, functional and calibrated equipment, standardized methods, and controlled environmental conditions. This results in superior laboratory practices and customer service. We have been accredited as a testing laboratory since May 2011.

A framework to support international trade through the removal of technical barriers is managed by IAF – International Accreditation Forum and ILAC – International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation. More than forty countries throughout the world are signatories to the Multilateral Agreements of IAF and ILAC, including USA, Canada, Japan, China, India, South Africa, Australia and Ireland.
