Lab Approval Scheme

Ensuring laboratories compliance with latest regulations

About LAB approval scheme

The Lab approval scheme is a thorough process that enables our experts to assess every aspect of your laboratory, and bring any gaps or opportunities to your attention. A typical lab audit begins with an onsite assessment of equipment and personnel. Existing test records are inspected, best practices and training programmes are reviewed and compliance with national standards are explored.

Suppliers face unnecessarily high costs due to repeated outsourcing of their testing processes. By creating their own in-house laboratory for physical testing, costs can be significantly lowered over time. However, there is no guarantee that their test results – whether done internally or externally – are precise. In order to avoid such critical errors, it is integral for lab equipment to be well-calibrated and in correlation with national standards. Therefore, to ensure quality results and a competitive edge, the laboratory must undergo stringent audits and inspection to maintain high standards of testing.
