The Quality System
The policy of quality and accrediting
The Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale del Lazio e della Toscana has implemented the customer-oriented Quality Policy in compliance with the ISO 9000 and UNI CEI ISO/IEC 17025 standards.
This is to grant qualified laboratory results and services, officially acknowledged by EU and by third countries.
IZSLT is a multisites laboratory accredited in 1998 (SINAL n. 201 accreditation) according to the UNI CEI EN 45001 directive, and now by Accredia (the Italian accreditation body) according to the UNI CEI ISO/IEC 17025 standard, “General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories”.
The quality approach is inspired by the Deming Cycle.
