  • Rapid turnaround time for audit and routine tests results - minimise disruption to your process supply chain enabling the treatment plant operator to identify and address issues quickly and avoid over-treatment of product
  • Accurate and reliable results - ensuring your treatment meets the requirements of the AS and AS/NZS series of treatment standards

  • Continually draws on technical expertise of industry specialists to ensure the programme is technically robust and fit for purpose.
