ESG Bags UKAS Accreditation for Marine Sediment Testing

UK’s ESG has received UKAS accreditation to carry out marine sediment testing services for offshore environmental monitoring.

Under the certification, ESG’s Environmental Chemistry laboratory is able to carry out analysis for a number of pollutants, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), total organic carbon (TOC), and heavy metals (OES-SED and ICP-SED).

Combined with the organisation’s existing accreditation for soil and water analysis services, the addition of these tests mean that ESG is able to provide marine monitoring support to a wide range of clients, the company noted.

Declan Burns, managing director, Energy & Waste Services, ESG, said: “When undertaking projects offshore, there is a whole range of stringent regulations that organisations need to comply with in order to minimize environmental pollution. This is vital to protect the public and safeguard delicate marine habitats.

“With our comprehensive array of laboratory testing services for marine monitoring, we can support clients in meeting these requirements, with streamlined analysis processes and fast turnaround times. Our UKAS accreditation will provide them with the peace of mind that they are receiving the highest quality service, so they can be sure they are doing all they can to safeguard the environment around their operations.”
