Technical assessment

WHAT IS A TECHNICAL ASSESSMENT ?

Technical assessments are contracts signed between Bipea and an official institution (please see list below) for technical agreements. Organizations that sub-contract to Bipea allow us to grant an official certificate to the laboratories.

Please note that Bipea does not carry out any agreement, since it is the responsibility of the institution in charge. On the contrary, Bipea provides a list of laboratories selected by a group of experts, which is based on the performances of the laboratories during the past campaign.
