Quality management & sustainability
We take our corporate responsibility seriously and implement a wide range of measures to ensure that our operations and the services we offer are constantly being improved and made more sustainable. Strict guidelines and standards ensure that we can meet the highest quality expectations at all times – both in terms of our services as well as in environmental management.
LVA GmbH has been accredited according to a wide range of standards since 1999 and operates a comprehensive and holistic quality management system. Reliability, traceability and safe, recognised analysis results are thus guaranteed, as are ongoing improvements and a constant drive to advance the learning process.
The management system covers the requirements of the following standards and normative documents:
- ISO 14001 and EMAS III are the authoritative standards for our environmental management
- ISO 17020 for our activities as an independent inspection body (type A)
- ISO 17025 for our activities as a testing body
- ISO 17065 for our activities as an organic control body and/or certification body
- EU GMP guidelines for our activities as a testing laboratory and/or the testing of medical preparations
Our environmental policy is aimed at achieving a positive impact – for the company, the environment and society. Our headquarters in Klosterneuburg, which were built in 2011 in accordance with the highest energy efficiency standards and are powered exclusively using green electricity, are a cornerstone of this commitment. Additional PV systems already allow us to operate in a CO2-neutral fashion. Since 2017, the environmental management system has received ongoing EMAS certification. The increasing resource and energy efficiency from year to year is therefore no coincidence, but the result of a consistently implemented environmental programme.
