Reference material producers Accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO 17034

Reference materials are used as criteria and benchmarks for measurement procedures and are indispensable for testing or monitoring. The work of conformity assessment in this area takes place during the production process for the reference materials. Accreditation in this area proves that the producers comply with the requirements of the DIN EN ISO 17034 standard.

What are reference materials?

In many areas of application, enterprises that must guarantee correct and reliable measurement results cannot forgo the use of reference materials. Reference materials are items or substances that are stable in terms of specific properties and are therefore ideally suited for measurements or tests. They are found in the areas of both material testing and physico-chemical foodstuff and environmental analysis.

Reference materials are an important tool for avoiding incorrect measured values – and the incorrect interpretations and decisions that often follow them – and for increasing confidence in analysis and testing. For this reason, ISO/IEC 17025, the relevant standard for accredited testing and calibration laboratories, stipulates that only certified reference materials should be used for quality assurance, as these materials ensure the traceability of measurement results to defined reference values and units.
