Development towards Accreditation

Competency is becoming a key factor in today's life and it is becoming essential for laboratories to be able to demonstrate their competency in order to compete. Accreditation is one of the most important tools for ensuring competence and providing confidence in the accuracy and reliability of testing and calibration results. Laboratories use accreditation to prove their competency and that they meet international standards.

we provide all support to all kinds of laboratories in all the activities that are required for the laboratories to obtain, maintain and extend their accreditation according to ISO/IEC 17025 or ISO 15189. Our support can be in the following forms:

A comprehensive project to qualify the laboratory towards accreditation includes.

- training of the laboratory staff in all aspects required to establish, implement and maintain the management system.

- direct assistance and supervision on establishing and implementing the documentation and accumulating the records required for accrediting the laboratory activities.

- Coaching in one or more of the activities required for accreditation. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Coaching in Quality Documentation Development
  • Coaching in Quality Documentation Development
  • Application of Quality Control Measures
  • Measurement Uncertainty
  • Selection of appropriate PT scheme
  • Organization of Inter-laboratory Comparison
  • Internal Audits
  • Technical support that is not limited to the following:
  • Operation and troubleshooting of test equipment
  • Validation and adaptation of the methods
  • Estimation of uncertainties
  • Interpretation and reporting of testing results in addition to any other specially requested support that the laboratory might require.
