Find and commission the best accredited testing lab
Accredited testing laboratories can demonstrate the high quality of their services by means of accreditations according to internationally recognized standards. In Germany, for example, laboratories have to go through an accreditation process with the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS). For many test orders, especially from public authorities, certain accreditations obtained in this way are a prerequisite. One of the most important standards is DIN EN ISO 17025 ("General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories"). Laboratories accredited to this standard have their own quality management system and all prerequisites to provide valid test results. In order for clients to be able to rely on the quality of the testing services in the long term, accredited testing laboratories must undergo regular re-examinations by the accreditation body.
