We aim to improve your competitiveness and open the door to new markets while helping you to go one step further in quality management thanks to the following standards:

Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) is a type of certificate aimed at ensuring a quality management system in all facilities where preclinical trials are conducted. Its acquisition is mandatory to obtain marketing authorization for any new product, as it assesses the potential effects it may have on people, animals, and the environment.

GLP certification principles apply to non-clinical safety tests of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, veterinary drugs, industrial chemicals, pesticides, and additives in both food and feed.

Currently, two organizations are responsible for this type of certification: AEMPS and ENAC.

  • On one hand, the Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices (AEMPS) oversees laboratories conducting non-clinical trials on substances and chemicals, whether they are human or veterinary medicines, cosmetic products, or medical devices.
  • On the other hand, the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) performs the same function in the field of pesticides, aiming to evaluate and certify compliance with GLP requirements in analyses conducted with plant protection products, feed additives, industrial chemicals (including biocides), and additives, flavors, and enzymes for food, new foods, and technological coadjutants (Source: ENAC).
We place particular emphasis on it, as this marking guarantees and certifies that a product complies with the applicable European harmonisation legislation, allowing it to move freely within the European Economic Area (EEA) and also ensuring users greater peace of mind in the knowledge that it meets the health, safety and environmental protection standards set by the EEA. The CE marking is mandatory and must be affixed before any product, whether new or used products imported from third countries, is made available for the first time on the EU market, unless a specific directive states otherwise. The manufacturer is responsible for complying with European legislation, this should be understood as any natural or legal person who produces a product or who has it designed or manufactured and markets it under his name or trademark.

Control Organizations play a crucial role in terms of safety. Their function is to ensure that the population is protected from potential risks posed by products and industrial facilities.

To prevent and control these risks, public administrations take on the responsibility of establishing industrial safety policies within their areas of competence. They achieve this by regulating requirements and conducting periodic controls during design, installation, production, and the lifespan of products and facilities, ensuring they maintain safety conditions.

The UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17021 assesses conformity in certification bodies, accrediting compliance with the necessary requirements for the proper audit and certification of management systems by any organization. Its objective is to increase confidence in certificates issued in accordance with standards related to the management system, such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001.

Its specific function is to determine both new requirements and useful parameters for the analysis of management systems and the competence of auditors, thereby enhancing the value of certification for the management systems of both public and private organizations.

The UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17065 assesses conformity with requirements related to the certification of products, processes, systems, and services. Its objective is to accredit the proper compliance in the validation by any certifying body or entity.

The purpose of this standard is to establish requirements for the competence, consistency, and impartiality of such bodies. Therefore, with its guidance, any organization can certify that it operates based on legal competence, with consistent and sustainable development, all under the impartiality of the institutions responsible for certifying the products they offer.

The UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17024 assesses conformity and outlines general requirements for organizations conducting certification of individuals.

Certification of individuals is an internationally established instrument aimed at helping demonstrate that professionals possess knowledge, professional skills, and specific abilities related to their professional profile. Furthermore, it ensures that all these aspects have been evaluated by an independent entity with technical competence.

This standard ensures that medical devices and related services meet the appropriate requirements and regulations, as well as the customer’s needs. It is essential to provide safety in the healthcare sector for both professionals and patients, whether in hospitals, clinics, or various medical facilities.

The primary purpose of the regulatory requirements of UNE-EN ISO 13485 is to ensure the proper design, production, and market release of any medical device by manufacturers. This certification verifies that the devices are entirely safe and suitable for their specific healthcare use.
