Our quality

At LGC Standards we are committed to providing high quality certified reference materials and proficiency testing services, in accordance with the requirements of internationally recognised accreditations. Many of our reference standard ranges are accredited to ISO 17034, and our sites also maintain ISO 17025 certification for testing and calibration laboratories, enabling us to analyse and issue detailed documentation for our products.

We consider accreditation through independent agencies essential in giving you confidence in the products and services we provide. The vast majority of LGC activities are either already accredited or are in the process of being fully validated for accreditation purposes.

Currently, we have four facilities which are ISO 17034 accredited for the production of Certified Reference Materials, as well as an ISO 17043 accredited proficiency testing hub. 

In choosing us, you choose a product certified to the quality you need and manufactured in an accredited facility, you choose a history of expertise and depth of experience, you choose expert advice in your local language and time zone, all to support your testing and accuracy.
