TASQA is a pioneer in the process of searching for analytical quality assurance through accreditation programs. Everything began in 1999 with the Good Laboratory Practices-GLP recognition by INMETRO. In 2002 we celebrated the accreditation by ISO / IEC 17025, the very first environmental lab in Brazil to achieve such a status. Since then there have been various achievements in this area, such a huge increase on the number of accredited parameters. The recognition by ANVISA and MAPA happened smoothly. The Agriculture Ministry set up a drug residue monitoring program in animal matrixes looking for fulfilling exportation international requirements, mostly from Europe Community (EC). Part of this fulfilling process there were a quality control audit plan carried out by EC auditors, with which we work together on Pesticides and Heavy Metals on meat, honey and fish. MAPA has also programs for quality control on raw materials, final products and fertilizers. Through out all these accreditations processes TASQA has worked hard to demonstrate its commitment to quality, transparency and excellence in its services.
Our accredited scope in ISO / IEC 17025 has over 3,500 parameters at three accredited units, including field sampling in compliance with the recent regulation SMA 90/2012 from state of São Paulo.
