Quality is a priority at Eurofins Megalab

In addition to this certification, we obtained UNE-EN ISO 14001 Environmental certification in 2016, as a result of our ongoing goal to improve and have a lower impact on nature, working constantly to reduce our environmental footprint with activities that are energy-efficient and as non-aggressive as possible.

In 2019 we obtained UNE-EN ISO 45001 certification on Health and Safety at the Workplace, the goal of which is maximum respect for our employees and ongoing improvement that will enhance and optimise their techniques and work conditions.
