Laboratory Accreditation

Laboratory accreditation is a means of determining the technical competence of laboratories to perform specific types of testing, measurement.  It also provides formal recognition to competent laboratories, thus providing a ready means for customers to identify and select reliable testing services able to meet their needs.

CALA Accreditation

CALA delivers laboratory accreditation in the fields of environmental food, mineral, and petroleum testing. Accreditation itself is based on satisfactory participation in the site assessment program plus satisfactory participation in proficiency testing. The granting and maintenance of accreditation is made by the CALA Accreditation Council on the recommendation of the CALA Advisory Panel.
