AccendoLAB have been actively seeking accreditation to ISO 15189:2012. Having already successfully completed the first two stages of the three stage accreditation process we just needed to complete the third and final stage.
The final stage, Stage 3, involves an onsite assessment by UKAS where the company’s Quality Management System and Technical Processes are scrutinised by a team of assessors from UKAS.
AccendoLAB’s Stage 3 onsite assessment was undertaken over two days on the 8th & 9th February 2022. The outcome of that assessment was that UKAS recommended AccendoLAB for accreditation to the International Standard ISO 15189:2012.
Attaining accreditation to ISO 15189:2012 has been a major priority for AccendoLAB as it sends out a clear message to all about the company’s commitment to quality and to providing a first class service to customers.
