    The renewal of ISO 17025:2005 accreditations cover provisions for Microbiological Testing and Chemical TestingThe scope of accreditation for microbiological testings are aerobic plate count, heterotrophic plate count, total coliform count, fecal coliform test, yeast and molds for foods, beverages, water and effluents; while the chemical testings include crude protein, crude fat, moisture content, ash content for food (fish, crustaceans, mollusks and derived products and dried fish), soy sauce and fish meal.


    The Certification was issued on the 27th day of November 2008 and is valid until 17 February 2013 subject to continuing conformity with the criteria and PAO conditions for laboratory accreditation.  DOST IX-RSTLs was first accredited in 2005 by BPSLAS (now PAO).
