Terrachem Analytical Laboratory is an accredited test laboratory by Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) according to the guidelines DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.
As a service company, our policy and top priority is quality assurance.
Well-developed quality management helps us to achieve this goal.
We consider guaranteed maximum quality of the services as rendered to be the most effective sales argument.
We are an independent and self-supporting analytical laboratory and the evaluation of the analytical results is, therefore, fully transparent and not adversely affected by commercial or financial influences.
Terrachem Analytical Laboratory does not get involved in projects, which could risk its clients’ confidence in the integrity of its power of judgement and analysis.
Our quality management system improves our processes in the laboratory in order to maintain test and calibration methods. By identifying improvement potential it is possible to increase the laboratory’s quality in order to raise customers’ satisfaction.
The accreditation which is being checked frequently by the DAkkS is a standard proof of our competence. It covers two major fields: requirements for the management and technical requirements.
The requirements for the management regard the efficiency and the quality management of the laboratory. The technical requirements consider the skills of the employees, our instruments, the quality and the test reports.
