Accreditations and conformity assessment bodies
Participation in proficiency testing and the use of reference materials are important prerequisites for the quality assurance of testing laboratories and their accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. In this department, horizontal regulations are drawn up with a view to harmonising international requirements and implementing them in assessments throughout DAkkS. The department also provides the basis for the accreditation of proficiency testing providers in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17043 and reference material producers in accordance with DIN EN ISO 17034, and thus for the horizontal rules and regulations required.
Benefits of accreditation
Voluntary accreditation ensures that these important tools for quality assurance in laboratories are offered by competent companies.
