Quality

Proficiency tests

Within the framework of the external quality assurance according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 we examine the result and the competence of accredited and non-accredited measurement methods through regular proficiency tests and laboratory comparison measurements.

We have passed the following external aptitude test in the past 3 years without any errors (z-score < 2) above the determination limit:
