Widened scope of testing

The Labour Environment Laboratory, operating at the Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority, widened its accreditation with methods applicable for testing water and sewage.

Since 2001, the Laboratory enjoyed an accreditation certificate for labour environment tests. The certificate confirms compliance with the international standard of PN-EN ISO/IEC 17025.
In 2007, the laboratory started its effort to confirm its capacity for testing water and sewage and a decision was made to widen the accreditation.

The assessment by auditors from the Polish Accreditation Centre followed preparation aimed at adjusting methods applied to latest Polish and international standards. Necessary equipment was purchased and personnel trained. The Laboratory was also involved in laboratories benchmarking and competence tests, which confirmed relevance of test methods applied.

In October this year, the Polish Accreditation Centre confirmed the Laboratory’s capacity for testing water and sewage, and Accreditation No. AB 362 was approved.
