ICC welcomes a new Corporate Member!

ICC is pleased to welcome its new Corporate Member, the South African Grain Laboratory NPC located in Pretoria.

The SAGL is an independent non-profit laboratory, created in 1997 by the South African grain industry to act as a reference laboratory for the grain and oilseed industry. Our analysis scope includes milling, grading, physical, chemical, rheological, baking, mycotoxin as well as macro- and micro-nutrient analyses. ISO 17025:2017-accredited test methods are implemented within a comprehensive quality system. Participation in several national and international proficiency schemes demonstrates technical competency, international comparability and traceability to national standards.

We expanded our scope of analysis by adding a Crop Protection Division in 2016 to support the broader agricultural community with accurate and reliable analytical results for registration purposes, quality control analysis after manufacturing as well as the extension of shelf-life. This Division can perform 5-batch analysis on technical material as well as the physical, chemical and stability testing on formulations as prescribed by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The laboratory is equipped to perform most tests required by FAO/WHO according to the latest Collaborative International Pesticides Analytical Council (CIPAC) methods and has OECD GLP compliance and ISO 17025:2017 accreditation.

We look forward to a fruitful cooperation!
