Material/structural tests

Material/structural tests

Accredited tests based on the following standards


Accredited activity

The Biomechanical Material Testing Laboratory works based on the quality assurance system regulated by the international standard EN ISO 17025. The test activity of the Laboratory was accredited in 2007 by the Hungarian Accreditation Board.
