We support accurate measurements by certifying and providing Chemical Reference Materials (RM-KIMIAs) in accordance with the requirements of ISO 17034:2016 (General requirements for the competence of reference material producers). Presently, the RM-KIMIAs are available for food, beverage and forensic analyses. Each RM-KIMIA is supplied with the *RM Certificate / Product Information Sheet.
THE REFERENCE MATERIALS ARE USED:
To perform instrument calibrations as part of quality assurance programmes;
To verify the accuracy of specific measurements;
To support the development of new measurement methods;
To facilitate commerce and trade.
* According to ISO 17034, RM Certificate is a document for Certified Reference Material; Product Information Sheet is a document for Reference Material.
