ALcontrol Laboratories

Leading environment and food testing group, ALcontrol Laboratories, was initially awarded ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems (EMS) certification by LRQA in 2003. Since that time LRQA’s Business Assurance approach to assessing ALcontrol’s management systems has delivered a broad spectrum of benefits that Health Safety and Environment Manager, David Doherty says have provided “a ten-fold payback.”
