Committed to Quality

As part of its commitment to quality, SOCOTEC has a management system accredited to ISO17025:2005 and a number of methods carry UKAS accreditation.

The laboratory has its origins in the waste management sector providing its analysis services to landfill operators. As the industry has progressed to producing energy from Anaerobic Digestion (AD), SOCOTEC’s gas laboratories have developed complementary methodologies to service this sector.
