Since 2008, Rescoll has been certified ISO 17025 by COFRAC for trials in the chemical field (fibers rate, density), thermal field (DMA, ATG, DSC), spectroscopies and chromatographies (IR, GPC, GC-MS), as well as in the mechanical field (traction, testing at different temperatures, trials for wind power, …).
In connection with its activities diversification strategy (Centest) and in order to meet the specific market needs of medical devices manufacturers, Rescoll is certified ISO 17025 by COFRAC for mechanical trials on orthopaedic implants, according to the 136 programme.
The validation method files, trials control and quality management system are the main strengths which were emphasized during this audit.
The trials submitted during this audit add to our accredited trials domain.
