The accredited test laboratory is used by our company in particular as a tool for further extension and higher quality of services in the area of technical service provided to the target group of our customers and business partners.

CS-BETON s.r.o., in compliance with the internal development plan, found the company laboratory in 1997. Permanent aim for improvement of provided services resulted in the laboratory gradually receiving the below qualification levels. Evaluation by commission ASPK, s.r.o., the centre for the evaluation of laboratory eligibility for tests during the performance of civil works issued on March 8th, 2002 the Certification on the laboratory correct activity. Logical continuation was the aim to receive a status of accredited testing laboratory. Certification on accreditation was awarded in 2007 based on the fulfilment evaluation of accreditation criteria as per ČSN EN ISO/IEC 17025.

The test laboratory is used in particular as a tool for further extension and higher quality of services in the area of technical service provided to the target group of our customers and business partners. Our goal is the provision of impartial and highly objective test results to all business partners.

The test laboratory is an independent unit within the company which is the responsibility of the company director, and it is completely independent on other parts of the company. The laboratory performs the sampling and all tests using the maximum objective and impartial method.

The laboratory policy is to ensure independence and impartiality of the test laboratory during its activity not only within the company but also from other parties.

The company representatives of CS-BETON s.r.o. as the top company managers producing their own concrete products and operating the test laboratory, declares in its statement the independence and impartiality of the test laboratory on other parts of the company.

The accreditation scope is defined in the valid annex to the certification on accreditation. Above the scope of accreditation, the laboratory performs sampling of fresh concrete and the tests, which are not accredited, but the laboratory has ensured all prerequisites for their correct function and objective completion.
