B&B Laboratories, affiliate of TDI-Brooks International, Inc., are proud to announce our completion of the ISO 9001:2015 processes and subsequent attainment of the ABS Quality Management System Certificate of Conformance applicable to “The Analysis of Geochemical, Geotechnical and Environmental Samples.”
We are proud to have been awarded the ISO 9001:2015 certification, an internationally recognized standard that ensures services meet the needs of clients through an effective quality management system.
Our decision to work towards ISO 9001:2015 accreditation demonstrates our commitment to providing a high-quality and consistent service to our clients and our ongoing investment in technology, development and processes and procedures. To become ISO 9001 compliant, B&B Laboratories underwent an evaluation process that included quality management system development, a management system documentation review, pre-audit, initial assessment, and clearance of non-conformances, all of which work to identify corrective actions that eliminate non-conformance to the quality management standard.
From oil spill response programs to determining trace contaminants in sediment, soils, tissue, and water, we have extensive experience with programs such as NOAA’s Status and Trends Mussel Watch (1999-currently), United States Fish and Wildlife Analytical Control Facility (2002-currently), Natural Resource Damage Assessment (2010-currently), USEPA, USGP and BOEM programs along with our involvement in the oil spill response at Mississippi Canyon 252 (Deepwater Horizon).
We have participated in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) laboratory intercalibrations for tissue, sediments and crude oil from 1998 through 2011 and are currently working on our NELAP accreditation with the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program.
