Which are the accredited laboratories in Lebanon to test the quality of olive oil to abide by international quality standards?

0

• There are presently in Lebanon no accredited laboratories. However, there are several high quality laboratories, public and private, that can perform almost all of the olive oil quality tests that are required by international standards. (See Industry Contacts page.) The Industrial Research Institute (IRI), a semi-autonomous public institute functioning under the direction of the Lebanese Ministry of Industry, is recognized as the official source of laboratory results for the Lebanese government. Though not yet accredited internationally, IRI and several private laboratories have already completed several steps towards receiving a series of required ISO certificates. • The Lebanese Ministry of Economy and Trade is presently implementing a quality improvement project financed by the European Union that includes initiatives for the support of several Lebanese laboratories to get internationally accredited, with the aim of facilitating Lebanese food exports.
