WHAT IS A TECHNICAL CONTROL? A TECHNICAL APPROVAL?
Technical controls are agreements signed between BIPEA and an organization (Ministry, official or professional body, or other), which will deliver a technical approval.
A technical approval is a recognition granted to a laboratory by this organization, for its activities.
BIPEA does not certify nor recommend a laboratory: we only act as a technical support.
The certifying body retains the responsibility of delivering the approval.
After studying the results by a group of experts, we transmit a technical opinion on each laboratory candidate, based on:
• its regular participation in PT programs,
• the evaluation of the performance,
• laboratory’s visit.
BIPEA can provide technical assistance to laboratories through training sessions, meetings and questionnaires.
