Since 2005 IAF-Radioökologie GmbH has been accredited as a test laboratory for natural and artificial radionuclides according to ISO/IEC 17025:2018 by DAkkS, the official German accreditation body (accreditation certificate D-PL-11201-01-00). Our accreditation is flexible, i.e., we are allowed to incorporate new testing and analytical methods developed by us into the scope of our accreditation.
The scope of our accreditation also comprises the determination of in-situ parameters such as measurements of radon concentrations, ambient gamma dose rate, surface contamination and building materials after DIN ISO 17216:2018-12 und DIN SPEC 18208:2018-12.
IAF has fully implemented all requirements of ISO 11929:2010 (Determination of the characteristic limits (decision threshold, detection limit and limits of the confidence interval) for measurements of ionizing radiation). A sample of a test report can be downloaded here.
IAF also participates successfully in periodic round robin tests for a wide range of radionuclides and sample matrices.
