Laboratories

The only sure way of identifying the presence or otherwise of asbestos is to have all samples of suspect material properly analysed by a laboratory formally accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

UKAS accreditation against the international ISO/IEC 17025 standard is vital because it confirms whether or not a laboratory has the right people, facilities, equipment, technical expertise and management systems in place so that you can trust its report to be complete, accurate and dependable.

Being UKAS accredited, like Ayerst Environmental, confirms the competence, impartiality and performance capability of a laboratory, helping you to minimise the risk and implications of unreliable results and avoid the wasteful expense of re-testing. In short, it means peace of mind.
