Proficiency Testing for Food

Our participation in proficiency testing schemes is mandatory for our laboratory to become or remain accredited. Proficiency testing is a fundamental aspect of laboratory quality procedures and has become a routine activity in many European laboratories.

How we are assessed

Our laboratory performance is assessed by independent accreditation organisations, which are responsible for accrediting testing laboratories:

  • Hellenic Accreditation System (ESYD) – It has been appointed as the national accreditation body of Greece and provides accreditation services to testing laboratories.
  • United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) – It is responsible for determining the technical competence and integrity of organisations offering testing.
  • Fapas – It is the largest and most comprehensive analytical chemistry proficiency testing scheme in the food sector. It has more than 2000 participants in over 100 countries.

The comprehensive proficiency testing schemes of these independent accreditation organisations ensure that the QACS Laboratory delivers the quality results you demand.
