The Tashkent arm of the Wakefield Inspection Services has been given accreditation by ICA Bremen, an international centre of excellence for cotton testing, research and quality training based in Germany, ICA Bremen said on its website.

On receiving the news, Utkur M. Sabirov, Director at Wakefield Inspection Services (Tashkent) Ltd said; "As part of the WIS group’s ongoing drive in offering quality services worldwide, we are delighted that WIS Uzbekistan has gained international recognition for their services in attaining ICA Bremen accreditation."

ICA Bremen has developed the scheme based on its own laboratory experience, as well as the good practices of the USDA, Commercial Standardisation of Instrument Testing of Cotton (CSITC) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Designed to raise the bar in the quality testing arena, the aim of ICA Bremen’s scheme is to establish an approved list of laboratories worldwide that meet a standard level of quality assurance.

Open to any international cotton testing laboratory, participating laboratories have to meet a level of quality assurance based on eight specific criteria, including conditioning, maintenance, calibration and testing procedures.

Twenty one laboratories are currently in the process of assessment. Once certified, they will become a ‘laboratory of choice’ to resolve quality disputes in line with the ICA bylaws and rules, as well as providing a service to the cotton industry. (SH)
