image banniére

Description of the programme

This proficiency testing (AGLAE's programme ‘4E’) in waste waters similar to industrial waste waters is provided in the frame of:

  • accreditation scopes related to physico-chemical analyses in waters (check AGLAE's accreditation - Cofrac No. 1-1664)

  • approvals issued by Departments of environment

An identical proficiency test is also conducted at lower concentration levels to meet specific requirements.
