Abstract

    Achieving the designation of being the first accredited laboratory in Colombia to provide the service of dynamic delayed olfactometry, is the result of a process of innovation and incursion into the environmental diagnosis field, starting from the implementation of different regulations and legal requirements that are applicable at both national (Colombia) and international levels; for example, the presidential decree 1600 of 1994, that establishes the compulsory of the laboratories to accredit their technical competence before the Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies Institute (IDEAM), which is the entity designated to manage and coordinate the environmental information system; the resolution 0176 of 2003, that establishes the accreditation procedure of environmental laboratories in Colombia; the national standard NTC/ISO-IEC 17025:2005 (adaptation of the international standard), in which it is described the general requirements related to the competence of the test and calibration laboratories, besides other international standards that are adapted by ICONTEC to Colombian Technical Norm (NTC), and the Resolution 1541 of 2013, that determines the general guidelines for the reception of complaints issued by environmental authorities.
