About Accreditation

The accreditation process determines, in the public interest, the technical competence and integrity of organizations offering testing, examination, inspection, calibration, verification and certification services. It operates across all market sectors, providing a transparent and an impartial assessment of these services against internationally recognized standards and other national or sectoral requirements, while

  • provides a transparent approach to conformity assessment in all sectors;

  • supports Regulations across a growing number of policy areas.

Together, conformity assessment and accreditation are important parts of a nation’s quality infrastructure, along with metrology and standardization. They build confidence that goods and services, processes, management systems and the work of individuals comply with national and international standards and regulations. They also assist in the risk-management and decision-making of manufacturers and regulators.

Benefits of Accreditation for Businesses

Accurate calibration, measurement and testing, performed in accordance with best practice, can limit errors and product failure, control production costs and contribute to an innovative environment. Accreditation is therefore an essential tool for decision-making, risk management and supplier selection. It can also provide a competitive advantage in domestic markets through access to public sector contracts, and also overseas with greater acceptance in export markets.




Benefits of Accreditation for Consumers

Accreditation helps to increase access to goods and services of consistent and reliable quality and safety.


Benefits of Accreditation for national governments and regulators

Accreditation is the preferred mechanism for identifying competent bodies to implement government policies and regulations aimed at safeguarding the public and building public confidence in activities that impact on such fields as health, welfare, security, the environment, education, and financial services.



PCA Accreditation for Testing Laboratory in Celma Indukta SA

The PCA accreditation certificate consists of 2 documents. The Main Accreditation Certificate of the Testing Laboratory No. AB 1747, confirming compliance with all requirements of the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standard "General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories". Accredited activities are defined in the second document - Scope of Accreditation No. AB 1747.

In accordance with specific activities, the Laboratory Celma Indukta SA has the ability to carry out accredited measurements of the efficiency of three-phase asynchronous electric motors in the power range up to 500kW. The laboratory has 3 brakes that cover the entire range of tested powers. Accreditation covers the indirect method of determining efficiency in accordance with PN-EN 60034-2-1: 2015-01, adopted as one of the most precise methods for determining the efficiency of electric motors available for industry.
As a Member State, it is extremely important to meet the requirements of the relevant directives and regulations of the European Union. It is no different with asynchronous motors in terms of meeting their performance requirements. The latest Regulation of the European Commission No. 2019/1781 obliges all member countries to comply with the requirements in terms of meeting the minimum levels of efficiency of these motors entering the European Union market. Our Laboratory allows reliable measurement of the efficiency of the motors, confirmed by an accredited report.
