Since the creation of REPSTIM, S.A. de C.V. (REPSTIM) we were clear that the quality of our services was essential in order to open our way in the National Oil and Gas industry, it is worth mentioning that we had to compete with transnational companies that had been in the market for more than 30 years.
From that moment on, we knew that it was necessary to validate our procedures before Entidad Mexicana de Acreditación A.C. (EMA) in order to guarantee our customers the quality of our products at laboratory level.
After approximately 1 year and a half, and several revisions, we have finally achieved Accreditation No: Q-1255-200 / 20 (Ref. No 18LP2855) as a Testing Laboratory for the Chemistry branch, and the scope is to perform tests in accordance with Crude Oil and residual fuel, these are tests that are used in the area of Well Stimulations. At this moment we are waiting for the Accreditation for the Construction branch, whose tests are used in the Cementation area, we consider that in the course of the following months we will be obtaining it, since the process began at the same time as the accreditation that we have obtained. Both accreditations are based on the requirements established in the NMX-EC-17025-INMC-2018 ISO / IEC 17025: 2017 standard.
To give us a better idea of the importance of these Accreditations, we had the opportunity to ask our Laboratory / Quality Supervisor Eng. Karla Magaña some questions:
