Since 2007, ASA has been accreditated by Cofrac according to ISO 17043 (accreditation N° 1-1836 scope available on www.cofrac.fr) as the provider of RAEMA.
In order to complete this offer, the Gel RAEMA has been setting up since 2010, with 2 annual schemes. Approximately 100 laboratories participate to these schemes and choose the flora in the menu among: Bacillus cereus, Pseudomonas, Lactic acid bacteria and yeast/moulds. Assessement of the trueness is only proposed during these tests and the analysis of the results leads to a report including the results of all participants.
