Transneft Diascan’s chemical laboratory has passed inspection confirming that it complies with the criteria of the international assay laboratories accreditation system (SAAL) and the requirements of GOST R ISO/IEC 17025-2009.
The inspection was conducted by the Analitica Association of Analytical Centre (AAC Analitica), acknowledged by such international accreditation organisations as ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) and APLAC (Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) as a full member.
The laboratory’s performance of all the procedures provided for by the quality manual, along with the efficiency of the existing quality system, including the results of the laboratory’s participation in interlaboratory comparative tests, were examined during the inspection.
Results of an intralaboratory control of results’ accuracy, including control of their stability, were checked and analysed; documents were reviewed to ensure the information contained there was true-to-life.
Transneft Diascan’s chemical laboratory passed a routine international accreditation in 2015, having obtained an expert evaluation certificate and accreditation certificates in the ILAC and APLAC systems valid for five years. The accreditation must be confirmed annually during inspection.
Transneft Diascan’s chemical laboratory was established in 2000 on the base of a polyurethane production shop (PPW). The laboratory performs 3 to 3.5 thousand tests annually.
