We can help you achieve the ISO 17034 standard

Take a step further along the road to quality in your laboratory.

Obtaining accreditation under the requirements of UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17034 implies recognition of the technical competence of producers of reference materials (PMR).

PMR entities that obtain this accreditation are recognised to offer their customers reference materials produced through a quality management system that develops and creates these materials, allowing evidence of the metrological traceability of the certified value to an established reference.  

Check the quality of your reference materials

They are often used by test and calibration laboratories to check the validity of their results, in activities such as verification or validation of quality control methods, etc.  

When CRMs are produced, the metrological traceability of the certified values must be ensured. The PMR must provide evidence of the relationship between the certified value and an established reference value of high metrological quality, normally in International System (SI) units.  

An organisation that has the capability to produce reference materials and provides information on its materials through certificates that include the property value of the material, its associated uncertainty and a statement of metrological traceability.
