Activities in Associations / committees / working groups
We are involved in various committees and organizations or have founded our own working groups for specific issues.
The objectives of this engagement are on the one hand to represent the interests of our customers and on the other hand to contribute to the scientific and practical development of proficiency testing schemes, reference materials and systems for quality assurance and quality management. Through these activities, a large number of contacts are made which we can pass on to our customers.
