Being accredited means that a company or organization has received impartial and international approval of having the competence, systems and routines to perform certain specific tasks within testing, control and certification.
In May 2016, we were approved for flexible accreditation, which means that Safe Control Materialteknik has the right – between Swedac’s regular inspection visits – to upgrade, add and change the scope of its accreditation, without notifying Swedac in advance. At the next inspection visit, Swedac will assess the changes in methods that have been made within the framework of flexibility.
With the flexible accreditation, this means that the laboratory can offer its customers accredited services, where you can use the standards required within the framework of the measurement principle, provided that you follow your (Swedac) approved routine for, among other things, validation, verification and competence requirements.
At Safe Control Materialteknik, we use, unless otherwise stated, a decision rule which means that we do not take into account the stated measurement safety when comparing against standard requirements or customer requirements.
If the customer wants to apply another decision rule for assessment of the result of the test, this must be agreed during the contract review and a discussion about whether Safe Control can meet these requirements and whether Safe Control may have to say no to the assignment.
Safe Control Materialteknik holds the following permits:
- The Swedish Work Environment Authority
Testing, examination and handling of asbestos-containing material.
