Accredia accreditation

The operating units of the Bologna Laboratory and the Forlì Laboratory constitute an ACCREDIA accredited multi-site Laboratory, with a 0110 Accreditation certificate in conformity with standard UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17025/2005. ACCREDIA accreditation guarantees the use of ACCREDIA accredited operating methods and therefore the proficiency of the Laboratories in the services provided. Accreditation certifies the quality standards of the work of a (certification and inspection) Body or (test and calibration) Laboratory, checking the conformity of the management system and expertise with internationally recognised regulatory requirements, as well as mandatory legislative provisions. In order to grant and maintain accreditation, ACCREDIA also carries out regular monitoring activities through inspections aimed at assessing the technical and organisational requirements of the test Laboratories.
