About ISO 17025 and accreditation

The aim of an accreditation procedure is to establish trust in the service provisions fulfilled. Accreditation is required to represent the level of conformity assessment activities in terms of technical competence. ISO 17025 accreditation certifies the technical competence of testing laboratories to perform specific tasks.

Accreditation guarantees that the results are obtained according to valid methods and procedures that comply with precise standards. Assays are carried out according to European Pharmacopoeia Chapter 2.6.14, Bacterial Endotoxins. Note: since January 2000, this text has been harmonized with the Japanese and American Pharmacopoeias (JP 4.01 and USP Chap. <85>, respectively).
