Hydrocarbons and the materials used for the production, distribution or metering of energy are subject to many tests to ensure that they comply with the standards or specifications in force.

Accreditation guarantees the reliability of the test results produced by laboratories. Certain certifications are also based on accredited tests.

The nonconformity of a product may lead to major malfunctions in energy supply and therefore in the economy as a whole. Use of accredited tests makes it possible to reduce this risk and the associated costs, and reinforces the confidence of end users.
