Accredited Laboratories20 April 2021
UKAS accredited laboratories are accredited against the ISO standards for the chemical and microbiological testing of different water matrices. The UKAS website has recently been revised to make finding a laboratory easier. Click on the link, then:
- Browse by category
- Click on Testing Laboratories
- Click on Environmental Samples
- Click on Water -Recreational
- Search the pages of listed laboratories for Swimming/Spa pools
And for Cryptosporidium also click on Water-drinking/potable, because this would also be acceptable as the methods are the same and few labs are accredited for swimming pool water.
Please ensure when searching for a laboratory that you consider all these categories for the relevant laboratories.
