  • R-TECH Materials adds ILAC accreditation

    For the past 15 years, R-TECH Materials has proudly worn the UKAS badge as a mark of the quality of its testing and analysis services. Whilst widely regarded and held in particular esteem within the UK, in some cases our international client base have been unaware of the importance of this accreditation and what it means for them. With this in mind, R-TECH Materials recently applied for the use of the UKAS accredited CAB combined ILAC MRA marks.

    ILAC which stands for the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation, is the international organisation for accreditation bodies operating in accordance with ISO 17011, for the assessment bodies for testing laboratories to ISO 17025. This organisation has established international arrangements based on the mutual recognition of certificates and reports issued by conformity assessment bodies (CAB) which facilitate trade and create a platform on which “accredited once, accepted everywhere” is realised. Established in 1996, ILAC consists of 36 members, one of which is UKAS.

    We hope that the introduction of this further accreditation mark will give our clients the confidence that they need to entrust their materials testing and analysis needs to our laboratory wherever they may preside.
