Aussie laboratories Auscott Ltd and ProClass Pty Ltd have joined the ICA Bremen 'International Laboratory Certification Scheme'.

The scheme aims to establish an approved list of laboratories worldwide that meet a standard level of quality assurance.

ICA Bremen has developed the scheme based on American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and Commercial Standardization of Instrument Testing of Cotton (CSITC).

ICA Bremen also builds on the good practices of US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and its own laboratory experience.

“Participating laboratories have to meet a level of quality assurance based on eight specific criteria, including conditioning, maintenance, calibration and testing procedures,” the German agency said.

According to ICA, eighteen laboratories are currently in the process of assessment and once certified, they will be also be able to resolve quality disputes in line with the ICA bylaws and rules. (AR)
