Confidentiality and Quality Control
We undertake that results will be kept confidential and that no analytical results will be released to any third party without prior consent of the client. Confidentiality is an integral part of our quality assurance certification.
Strict quality control procedures are applied to all chemical and bacteriological analysis performed which involves frequent use of replicates to monitor precision and standard reference materials and blanks to monitor accuracy. The laboratory is also routinely involved with inter-laboratory comparison and trials including the Australian Standards NLLNCT program (National Low Level Nutrient Collaborative Trials) and is a member of ASPAC (Australian Soil and Plant Analysis Council) which includes a regular Quality Assurance Program for soils and plants. EAL also assists in the formulation of suitable laboratory methods for Acid Sulfate soil analysis.
The Laboratory has NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) Quality Assurance accreditation on selected tests and is continually updating the number of tests directly accredited by NATA. Please contact EAL for a current list of NATA accredited tests.
