At Randox Testing Services we strive to maintain the highest standards of laboratory practises and accreditations across our testing portfolio. We do this with the overall aim to reduce the risk of drug & alcohol misuse in the workplace whilst also advancing the standards of drug & alcohol testing across the globe.

What is Laboratory Accreditation?

According to United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), accreditation is the formal recognition that an organisation is competent to perform specific processes, activities, or tasks in a reliable credible and accurate manner.

Laboratories can  be accredited by a range of various organisations and bodies, but some certifications may have more relevance than others.

ISO 17025

The ISO 17025 standard that Randox Testing Services testing processes meet is the most appropriate for UK drug and alcohol testing laboratories, and is awarded by UKAS, the Government certification body.

This accreditation allows laboratories to demonstrate competent operation and the generation of valid results, thereby promoting confidence in work both nationally and on a global scale. It also helps to facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies by generating wider acceptance of results between countries. Test reports and certificates can be accepted from one country to another without the need for further testing.
