Yes indeed, any testing or calibration laboratory, irrespective of size can be accredited. In your case, the client is internal, I assume the production plant ? The benefits of accreditation apply for inhouse laboratories too. Some internal laboratories have larger risks to ensuring quality and safeguarding impartiality than commercial contract work laboratories, so this needs to be carefully addressed.
