As internationally recognized standard this accreditation presents a proof of competence, providing comparable standards for accredited tests so that test results from Corporate Scientific Services are accepted by national authorities and courts at home and abroad.
Even demanding customers, for example from automotive, aviation and aerospace industries require specification testing related to this standard. Additionally, an accreditation according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 is an indispensable requirement for many tests in regulated areas.

Several laboratories in Corporate Analytics have the authorization to perform analyses according to the guidelines of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) pursuant to the requirements of the Chemicals Act (ChemG). Tests under GLP conditions provide the formal framework for investigations associated for instance with registration of substances and mixtures or REACH EU chemicals regulations. They are required by law in order to ensure environment and consumer protection.

The authorization of Corporate Scientific Services as a test laboratory according to GLP-guidelines allows mutual international acknowledgement of test results and ensures comparability of data collected for the respective Regulatory Authority. A positive side effect of international acknowledgement is to avoid unnecessary multiple investigations.
