DEEPENING ON ISO 17034: What information should a Certificate of Analysis include?

CIFGA quality system is based on ISO 17034 (General Requirements for the competence of reference materials producers) and ISO 9001 (Quality management Systems - Requirements).

CIFGA specializes in the manufacture of reference materials, being one of the first companies in Spain to be accredited in the ISO 17034 standard and the only one in marine biotoxins standards worldwide.

We work following a system of continuous improvement that leads to excellence in services and processes to satisfy customer requirements and expectations, in accordance with the standards:

  • Reference materials producer accredited by ENAC, according to ISO 17034.
  • Quality Management System certified by AENOR, according to ISO 9001.

This remarkable achievement involves not only technical competence and good quality management practices, but also verification of critical production planning, material selection, assignment of certified values, uncertainty, traceability, homogeneity and stability, as well as packaging and documentation.

In this sense, it is important to know what kind of information must be included in a valid Certificate of Analysis (CoA).

For instance, a full description of the products is included in the Certificates of Analysis, but, do you know what else must be specified? Check the information that a CoA complying with ISO17034 should include (the fields marked with an asterisk are not mandatory, they are indicated in the CIFGA certificates as additional information):
