WOK, lime demand and sieve analyses for peat products. These are the first laboratory analyses for RHP quality control that certified companies are allowed to perform themselves. But first the own internal laboratory must be acknowledged by RHP. Registration for this can be done with the form ‘RHP application form acknowledgement internal laboratory’ at My RHP.
Internal laboratories that register to perform (one of) the aforementioned RHP research methods themselves, first receive a visit from RHP. During this visit the newly developed laboratory manual will be handed out and explained.
The laboratory manual is a blueprint with protocols, work instructions and forms. It is intended as a tool for laboratory staff to correctly implement the RHP research methods. If desired, an internal laboratory can receive more extensive coaching.
When experience has been gained with the method(s), a visit for recognition will be done by RHP. An internal laboratory can hereby be officially recognized for the method(s) concerned, with a certificate as proof. Of course, external independent checks always remain. The intention is that, in addition to these first research methods, more will follow over time.
