What is accreditation
«Certification by a national accreditation body that certifies that a given compliance assessment body meets the criteria established by standardised regulations, and, where appropriate, any other supplementary requisite, including the ones set out in the relevant sector programmes, to carry out a specific compliance assessment activity» REG (EU) No. 765/2008.
Both at national and international level, users require increasing guarantees of the quality and safety of goods and services purchased, that producers and suppliers are called upon to guarantee in observance of legislative requirements and to face the competition in increasingly complex markets.
With an inspection report on its own laboratory test, the supplier can prove to the client that it operates in compliance with international standards and other specific instructions regarding its field of activity.
Only accredited test laboratories can provide the market (business, P.A., consumers) with reliable, credible results that are accepted on an international level.
ACCREDIA is the sole national accreditation body appointed by the Italian government as the only recognised body for certifying the competence of Test Laboratories.
In July 2017, ACCREDIA recognised LB Servizi as being compliant with the requisites of the standard UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 “General requisites for the competence of Test and gauging laboratories”.
In May 2020, LB Servizi successfully updated to the standard 17025:2018.
The awarded accreditation certifies L.B. Servizi per le Aziende Srl’s technical competence in conducting the tests:
