Quality Assurance

Reliance Labs has maintained each of these certifications continually and uninterrupted since its inception in 1977.

Reliance Laboratories has developed an extensive Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) Program to ensure precise, accurate and reliable data reporting. Our QA/QC Program is regularly updated to conform to continually changing state and federal regulatory certification standards for environmental laboratories. The Reliance QA/QC Manual covers all aspects of laboratory operation including Company Organization, Qualification Summary for Personnel, Chemical Hygiene, Personnel Responsibility, Audits, Confidentiality and Reporting Format.

Reliance's two laboratory facilities are both currently certified by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection and the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, Bureau for Public Health. Reliance has maintained each of these certifications continually and uninterrupted since its inception in 1977.

Recently, we have added certification from the Maryland Department of the Environment and the Virginia Department of General Services, Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services.

Each Reliance facility undergoes an independent audit by certifying regulatory agencies at least once per year. These inspections typically consist of an on site evaluation of the facilities that perform the analysis of compliance monitoring samples and include review of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and laboratory personnel.
