UILI focusses on the International representation of the Laboratory Industry

In a time where it becomes more and more important that the measurement results of the laboratory industry become more and more comparable and that the quality standards are raised to a very high level UILI is increasing its international role in representing our industry. UILI has selected some major topics to realize these goals.

  • Effective representation of the laboratory industry in international standards bodies.
  • Strengthen its global comparable ILP studies
  • Build a true global laboratory community
To realize al this UILI will in 2016 become a member of ISO/REMCO, Mirror the work of standards bodies by working groups, extend its Interlaboratory Practice with more and different programs and organize the LabMeeting with other laboratory organisations in combination with ILAC-IAF meeting.

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to attend the ‘2016 UILI LABMEETING – Governing Board and Working Group Meetings’ that the International Union of Independent Laboratories (UILI) will organize on October 27 and 28, 2016 in New Delhi, India.

UILI LabMeeting 2016

UILI LabMeeting in New Delhi, India on October, 27 - 28th

Our ‘2016 UILI LABMEETING’ should be seen as an initiative to raise awareness for the importance of the laboratory industry societal level. From this perspective, it also forecasts composite talks: many social and economic aspects of laboratory testing do pass in review by prominent speakers from around the globe. I refer to the website of UILI (www.uili.org). There you can find all information and documentation concerning the activities.

UILI members, ILAC-IAF members and other beneficiaries I would like to welcome to our afternoon event and Meet and Greet party. I express the expectation that the ‘2016 UILI LABMEETING’ will give a valuable contribution to the image and authority of the laboratory industry and the ILAC-IAF Joint Annual Meetings in India.

Would you like to attend our 2016 LabMeeting?
Send an email to secretariat@uili.org or register on the website.
