RC Inspection Group’s RCI Analytical Services, based in Mongolia, is now ISO 17025 accredited. This is the second accredited laboratory for the company – the first is its Ukrainian laboratory. The company wanted ISO 17025 accreditations for its laboratory activities in order to ensure a high level of assurance to its clients.
The accreditation shows the Mongolian laboratory has successfully fulfilled the ISO evaluation process, which includes an assessment of the laboratory’s compliance with the technology programme requirements.
RC Inspection has indicated this accreditation has been a key step in its overall future development, enabling it to carry out fully independent qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the chemical elements contained in metals listed on the LME. The relevant and required techniques are used to define the purity and minimum assay that the registered brands must meet.
The company’s laboratories, based in the Netherlands, Mongolia and Ukraine, provide analytical science problem solving and testing capabilities to a wide range of customers across many industries. ?According to RC Inspection, this accreditation broadens its reach by certifying the quality of the data acquisition and analysis processes used across a range of techniques and capabilities.
RCI Analytical Services is currently working on getting all the laboratories accredited under ISO/IEC 17025 and are actively participating in inter-laboratory tests and international round robins.
