Accreditation of Kaizen Lab



Click here in order to download the PDF with the updated list of the accredited tests of the laboratory.


Only testing laboratories are qualified to supply to the market reliable, credible and internationally recognised certifications of conformity.

Accreditation certifies the quality of the work of of a testing and calibration laboratory (testing in the case of KAIZEN LAB), assessing the conformity of its management system and its competences against internationally recognised requirements and standards, including all legal obligations.


Accreditation is thus a guarantee of:

  • Impartiality:representation of all interested parties within the body or laboratory.
  • Independence:assessors and committees releasing the certification or report guarantee their absence of conflict of interests with the organisation to be certified.
  • Correct behaviour:European standards disallow offers of consultancy either directly or through associated organisations.
  • Competence:accreditation certifies primarily that those performing the assessment are culturally, technically and professionally qualified.
