The International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) 17025 accreditation confirms international compliance and technical competence of the laboratory.  Psychemedics was accredited by Forensic Quality Services – International (FQS-1), the country's longest established provider of ISO accreditation in the United States.

Psychemedics' dedicated laboratory is located in Culver City, California where hair samples from all over the world are processed. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation for drug screening and LC/MS/MS and GC/MS/MS equipment for the most sensitive confirmation testing. The state of the art laboratory allows Psychemedics to provide the most advanced drug testing services available.

"In an industry where all hair testing technology is not the same, Psychemedics' proprietary technology continues to deliver the greatest sensitivity for identifying drug abusers.  As the industry leader, Psychemedics has always maintained the highest standards and quality controls," said Raymond C. Kubacki, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This additional recognition affirms to our growing number of international clients, as well as domestic clients, that they are partnered with one of the highest quality laboratories anywhere in the world."

ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation provides formal recognition to laboratories that demonstrate technical competency, and maintains this recognition through periodic evaluations to ensure continued compliance. This international recognition is given to a select group of laboratories worldwide. The evaluation by an independent testing facility provides assurance of the laboratory's ability to maintain stated quality standards, provide consistent results and continually improve customer satisfaction levels while conforming to international standards.
