Laboratory analyses in site investigation
AS SIKB 3000 Analyses of soil, sediment and groundwater samples
In the Netherlands the critical activities in site investigation and remediation are subject to regulation. This ensures a good quality as well as integrity. Thanks to this, trust in the results is relatively high.
The fieldwork for site investigation may only be performed by a company carrying the appropriate license, which is based on a certificate for BRL SIKB 2000 or an accreditation for AS SIKB 2000. The analyses of the soil, sediment and groundwater samples may only be performed by laboratories carrying the appropriate license, which is based on an accreditation for the Accreditation Scheme AS SIKB 3000, Laboratory analyses for soil, sediment and groudwater investigation. This accreditation scheme consists of a document with the general requirements, AS SIKB 3000, and three documents with the specific requirements as to the laboratory analyses. These documents are listed below.
Whereas we have translated some of these documents into English, none of these translated documents represent the official current version. Until we are able to maintain the English language versions as well as the official Dutch versions we only publish the English versions to present you with an idea of the type of requirements they contain. Please note that the current Dutch language versions do contain a summary in English of the key elements.D
The documents for the analyses of sediment and groundwater samples have not yet been translated into English.
