For a moment there, I thought we were going to play Charades!

 

But then Zanorias answered!

Don't forget BRC clause 9.3.4 in Ver 8 & increasingly UK customers are requiring that any testing that is done to support product supplied to them is conducted in an ISO17025 facility (certainly mandatory for all UK retailers).

 

If your facility is designed to accommodate this (drain segregation, positive control under lock & key etc.) this is ideal - unfortunately some laboratories are not designed this way & with the cost of the accreditation it can sometimes work out cheaper to subcontract micro testing to a 3rd party.

SQF also requires that you use an accredited lab.
