ICNE Quality

We are a cGMP Compliant and ISO17025:2005 accredited testing laboratory who are routinely inspected by both the VMD and UKAS to ensure continued compliance to the required standards and regulations.

Quality Assurance

The quality and accuracy of the testing we provide is our highest priority and to ensure that all staff members within ICNE follow an internal quality management system.

The primary focus of this quality management system is the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 International standard accredited by UKAS and GMP. Please view our accreditations and certificates within the drop down menu below.


The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation body recognised by government to assess, against ISO/IEC 17025:2005, organisations that provide testing and calibration services.

Accreditation by UKAS to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 demonstrates the competence, impartiality and performance capability of laboratories. This standard has high commonality with ISO 9000 although the requirements for competence in laboratories are much more specific within ISO/IEC 17025:2005.

All of our UKAS accredited methods have the requirement to be enrolled within a Proficiency Testing Scheme. Proficiency Testing Schemes provide samples of unknown value to ICNE which we then analyse and send the results in to be compared and scored against the intended result.

ICNE Participate in a minimum of 4 schemes per year covering all tests in our accreditation plus a few others to ensure we are QCing our own analysis as well as yours.

VMD / GMP Certificate

The Veterinary Medicines Directorate monitor manufacturing facilities and independent contract laboratories involved in the manufacturer of veterinary medicines.

The quality control testing, including stability testing of investigational and marketed medicinal products, is regarded as part of the manufacturing process. Laboratories providing this service should be operating in compliance with the EU Guide to GMP as it would apply to a laboratory in the same way as if that laboratory was part of the manufacturer’s own organisation.
