Laboratory on site:
Oceania has achieved FSSC 22000 accreditation and Step 5 (ceiling step) for MPI verification audits. It also has auto approval for EDEC generation. The laboratory is accredited under ISO:IEC 17025 (2017) and registered as an MPI RLP laboratory which provides international recognition for its results. Approximately 100 tests are required for milk and environmental monitoring. Currently 35 test methods are accredited by IANZ and most are registered under MPI RLP. Test turnaround KPI for all tests is 5 days from date of receipt, supporting Oceania’s Agile Supply Chain. More than 60 new tests will be set up in 2020 under the new laboratory currently under construction, with the support of a new LIMS under development. These will boost staff numbers further and provide almost full on site services operating over 7 days per week, significantly reducing the need for any external support.
