Since we obtained our first certification in 1993, we have continually extended the scope of our accreditations in terms of parameters (currently totalling one hundred) and geographically, to cover all our sites. Consequently, our quality management system now functions across all areas of the business, whether accredited or not.
With the company’s history and the move to compliance with EN ISO/CEI 17025, we are well placed to achieve continuous improvement in processes. Our approach to quality involves regular and increasingly detailed monitoring, with around fifteen internal audits a year, external evaluations, some twenty inter-laboratory circuits (including Bipea and Germ’Service) and daily monitoring through in-house testing and skills maintenance. We use this monitoring to enrich our data and our knowledge to improve the way we evaluate the performance of our methods and practices.
In parallel, our agricultural laboratories are also French Agriculture, Food and Forestry Ministry certified to carry out soils analysis.
The Blois site is recommended by Terres Inovia for the detection of Aphanomyces euteiches in soil and assessing its infectivity.
Our cereals analysis services are referenced by the Paris Grain Trade Association under addenda I and II.
Our Lille and Toulouse laboratories are INAO authorised for sensory evaluation.
GALYS laboratoire holds French research tax credit accreditation.
