Monrovia, CA (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Eurofins Eaton Analytical (EEA), the leading potable water testing laboratory in the US, announced that it has successfully achieved ISO 17025 accreditation for both environmental and food testing methodologies in its Monrovia, CA, laboratory. ISO 17025 is a global standard applicable for testing laboratories that is based on a comprehensive review of a laboratory’s quality system and method performance. Achieving this accreditation for accurate, consistent testing and calibration strengthens Eurofins Scientific’s worldwide leadership in food and environmental testing.
Adding ISO 17025 accreditation to its drinking water lab testing approval by 45 US States, TNI (NELAP) and USEPA UCMR3, demonstrates EEA’s commitment to meeting the most stringent international standards for water testing. The attainment of ISO 17025 accreditation also demonstrates its capability to produce precise and consistent results down to sub parts per billion levels for clients. This also enables the laboratory to help international businesses in particular meet global demands for consistent quality in processes and results. Water continues to be recognized as critical for public health protection, whether in public water supplies or as a component of food and beverages, and with the continued interest in emerging contaminants and the development of ever more stringent standards, having a laboratory focused on water that meets ISO standards helps to ensure reliable results.
“ISO17025 has become the gold standard for accreditation of laboratories, both within the US and amongst global food and beverage companies,” said Dr. Andy Eaton, Technical Director of Eurofins Eaton Analytical. “We are pleased that we achieved this accreditation for a large number of analytical methods in very short order. It reflects both our commitment to our clients to produce a quality product and the dedication of our staff in their day-to-day activities in the lab. Having ISO 17025 accreditation demonstrates our competency to conduct testing to standards that go far beyond traditional EPA criteria and illustrates the strength of our quality management system. This will help our increasingly global clients by offering them the services of a laboratory that tests according to stringent standards that are recognized worldwide, allowing analytical results to be accepted in multiple regulatory environments. We are pleased to join the rest of Eurofins Scientific’s food and environmental laboratories around the world in offering ISO 17025 certified methods for those clients.”
