laboratory works according to a quality politic based upon the principles
- Reliability (keeping results)
- Efficiency (technical service with fewer costs for manufacturers
- Transparency (daily and exhaustive information to manufacturers
In order to achieve good quality levels within the diverse activities
of the companies, in most cases measurements for products are required.
The quality depends mainly on the global quality of a laboratory.
The quality system is described in the quality manual and in the
system documents and the whole organisation implied.
In order to assure the
quality, the lab has planned and revised control systems,
based upon a statistic analysis to check the validity of test results
and calibrations. These controls include among others the habitual
use of reference materials and the programmed and periodic participation
on comparing exercises with transformer companies (daily cistern
comparison, sending of blind samples and collaborative monthly tests
organized by ALLIC), as well as with other inter-professional laboratories
of Spain (tests, official comparison obliged by the State’s
Ministry of Agriculture, Fishing and Food), and with the main European
inter-professional laboratories (organized tests by Ceca-Lait (France);
A. Hüfner, Germany).
