DCE’s quality assurance (QA) ensures the high quality of our products.
Quality assurance at DCE is one of Aarhus University’s internal QA systems to ensure that public sector consultancy maintains the same high quality as the university’s research. The procedures and overall frameworks for Aarhus University’s QA efforts are available in a memorandum on quality assurance of the research-based public sector consultancy (February 2010).
DCE’s QA procedures encompass chemical analyses, including sampling and in situ measurements, as well as professional consultancy.
The chemical analyses, including sampling and in situ measurements, have been accredited by DANAK – the Danish national body for accreditation of laboratories – in accordance with the European standard ISO 17025: General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.
The quality assurance of academic consultancy is based on the European standard ISO 9001: Quality management systems, but has not been certified in accordance with the standard.
