This certification covers the majority of its biocides testing, including virology
Leading microbiological testing firm, MSL Solution Providers, is delighted to announce that it has been granted the latest ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation by UKAS 4045 for its biocides services.
The accreditation was awarded on 30 th June 2022 following an assessment from UKAS, which ensures that both the company’s in-house laboratory and all mandatory testing it performs comply with the updated ISO/IEC 17025 standard.
Carolyn Burney, MD at MSL Solution Providers, comments ‘We’re thrilled to have received this stamp approval for our biocides testing, which now joins our cosmetics testing services in being UKAS 4045 accredited. We are proud to be one of the small handful of independent labs to be accredited by UKAS to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standards, which demonstrates our commitment to offering the highest quality testing service possible.’
ISO/IEC 17025:2017 specifies the general requirements for the competence of testing laboratories. The revised standard now incorporates the mandatory tests themselves, as well as the laboratories in which they are performed; previously (ISO 17025:2005), only the latter was accredited.
In addition, MSL Solution Providers has recently been awarded two further accreditations: the ISO 14001 certification for environmental sustainability, highlighting its ongoing commitment to minimizing the negative impact of its operations on the environment; and ISO 27001, which recognises its proven compliance to the highest level of information security management.
