The accreditation to ISO / IEC 17025 allows laboratories to demonstrate their technical competence and ensure the accuracy of their test results. This gives confidence in the quality of their services and deliveries, both nationally and worldwide.
This standard also helps to facilitate potential collaborations between laboratories and other agencies by generating wider acceptance of results across countries. Test reports and certificates can be accepted by one country of another without the need for further testing, which in turn improves international trade.
ISO / IEC 17025 has been updated to a 2017 version, which accommodate the latest changes in the laboratory environment and work practices. We are therefore very proud that we have just received the statement from the RvA that VSL meets the requirements of this new standard and is accredited for this ISO / IEC 17025: 2017.
