Swiss Federation of National Associations of Measurement, Testing and Analytical Laboratories


One of the services we offer is the management of standards-related expert committees, each of which deals with a specific specialist topic. The expert committee EUROLAB-CH deals with the topics of quality, accreditation and certification in the laboratories.



EURLOAB CookBooks are short documents on quality issues to help laboratories comply with ISO/IEC 17025. All the EUROLAB CookBooks have been updated in accordance with the revised ISO/IEC 17025:2017. They were developed on the basis of experience and in-depth discussions with EUROLAB TCQA, the responsible technical committee of EUROLAB.
