We’re delighted to have achieved the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation by UKAS 4045 for the majority of our biocides testing, including virology. These now join our cosmetics testing services in being UKAS 4045 accredited.
This stamp of approval makes us one of a small handful of independent labs to be accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standards and demonstrates our commitment to offering the highest quality testing service possible.
The accreditation was awarded on 30th June 2022 following an assessment from UKAS, which ensures that both the company’s in-house laboratory and all mandatory testing it performs comply with the updated ISO/IEC 17025 standard.
ISO/IEC 17025:2017 specifies the general requirements for the competence of testing laboratories. The revised standard now incorporates the mandatory tests themselves, as well as the laboratories in which they are performed; previously (ISO 17025:2005), only the latter was accredited.
