The CERIC laboratory have been awarded an extension of its COFRAC accreditation

The CERIC laboratory has been awarded an extension of its COFRAC accreditation for the testing of wood and solid biofuels and it allows us to fully support the Poujoulat group activities in all areas of wood fuel.

What will this accreditation extension to the laboratory CERIC?

"This extension to our accreditation is well deserved recognition for CERIC who have been producing the highest quality work for the last 20 years. There are not many test laboratories that will get close to this high level of COFRAC accreditation which backs up the quality of our tests and the stability of our results. It is a guarantee of professionalism and it further enhances our credibility". Lionel Druette, Director of CERIC

What is COFRAC?

COFRAC (Comit� Fran�ais d'Accr�ditation) is the association responsible for the accreditation of test laboratories, notification and inspection bodies.

COFRAC was created in 1994 and was elected as the National Accreditation body on the 19th of December 2008, thus recognising accreditation as a public authority's activity.

The CERIC Laboratory launch his new website !

As we explained in the new brochure, released halfway through 2012, the CERIC website has been given a complete makeover.

Both the look and the content have been transformed to highlight the laboratory's areas of expertise and the different projects that it works on.

The website is structured around 4 sections: an introduction to the laboratory, expertise,
applied research and the « CERIC tested » label. Each section is covered on one page to make easier to use: now you just need to scroll down to access all the content. The new website is really intuitive and easy to use. It is also more engaging, thanks to the addition of animations and videos.

Thanks to this new website, the CERIC will be able to show off it extensive skill set!
