UKAS accreditation

We are delighted to announce that our new purpose-built laboratory in Bourne has been granted ISO/IEC 17025:2017 UKAS accreditation for both physical and chemical testing. This offers us the capability to carry out certification testing, ensuring that each product has been rigorously tested to conform with all requirements of the appropriate standards and is fit for purpose.  This accreditation also allows us to develop and test new products in line with the requirements of our customers.
 
The full laboratory scope is available on the UKAS website. The scope covers EN374-1:2016 for Chemical resistant gloves, EN388:2016 for Mechanical resistant gloves and aspects of EN420 together with EN455 for medical gloves.
 
If you have any queries regarding the laboratory or would like to visit us for a tour and demonstration, please do not hesitate to contact either your sales representative or the Laboratory and Technical Manager, David Langridge at david.langridge@polycohealthline.com.
