Certification and Accreditation
Since it was established in 1947, the objective of the OFICE laboratory has been to offer the highest standards of quality, reliability, trustworthiness and validity of results in the analyses undertaken, thereby achieving customer satisfaction and meeting their needs and expectations.
In an effort to meet new quality requirements in an increasingly competitive market, and in order to continue to guarantee the services we provide our clients, OFICE obtained the ISO 9001:2008 Certification. This new focus allows Quality Control Management to implement a solid base that reconciles the needs and interests of different departments and to evaluate the degree of satisfaction in the services we offer.
Likewise, in order to confirm the technical competence of our laboratory, OFICE has obtained ISO 17025:2005 Accreditation (No. 693/LE1419) according to the criteria contained in Standard UNE-EN ISO/IEC17025:2005, granted by the National Accreditation Body (ENAC) to perform Chemical Testing on agrifood products and Microbiological Testing on food products. Accreditation according to standard ISO/IEC 17025 represents national and international recognition of the technical competence of our laboratory and sets us apart from the competition, especially with regard to the analysis of amino acids by means of liquid chromatography, as we are the first Spanish laboratory to obtain this accreditation. By being accredited by ENAC, we ensure that the results we issue are valid not only at a national level, but also on an international scale. According to the accreditation body itself, this certificate serves as a passport for the product represented in the analysis report, since “it reduces the technical obstacles to exporting products for sale in other countries”.
The goal of continuous improvement is the main commitment made by the Quality Assurance Unit. For this reason, OFICE is committed to gradually increasing the scope of their accreditation, thereby increasing the competitiveness of the services we provide our clients
