Proficiency Testing Schemes

Laboratory proficiency testing is an essential element of quality assurance.

As a laboratory that tests samples for safety and quality, we understand the increasing demands for independent proof of competence from you and regulatory authorities.

Together with laboratory accreditation and the use of validated methods, this is an important requirement of the EU Additional Measured Directive 93/99/EC applying to laboratories entrusted with the official control of food.

RSSL participate in the following:

Current Good Manufacturing Practice

At RSSL, we provide pharmaceutical services (pharmacopoeial testing, release testing and stability testing) following our cGMP Quality System.

We have been issued with Certificates of GMP Compliance for products for human use and veterinary products stating our compliance with the principles and guidelines of Good Manufacturing Practice as laid down in Directives 2003/94/EC and 91/412/EEC respectively, by the United Kingdom's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

We have also been inspected by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) against current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) and classified as an acceptable contract testing laboratory.



UKAS Testing

Our laboratories perform testing that is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) as being compliant with BS EN ISO/IEC 17025.

It is our policy to accredit all testing that is carried out routinely by the laboratories. However, since the Quality System operates throughout all laboratories and many of the procedures are common for work performed, even work that is not accredited benefits significantly from our UKAS accreditation.

We are registered as UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory No 1216 and details of accredited tests are listed in our Schedule of Accreditation.
