Filter Testing and Certification

Camfil is an IANZ accredited organisation that complies with the requirements of NZ ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.

We provide professional, on-site IANZ accredited testing and certification services to help organisations meet and maintain International and Australian standards for controlled environments, and ensure the conformance, ongoing safety and operating efficiency of contamination control equipment.

Our services include IANZ testing and compliance certification for controlled environments, and HEPA filter supply and replacement. These include hospital cleanrooms, pharmaceutical cleanrooms, manufacturing cleanrooms, biological safety cabinets, fume cabinets/cupboards, cytotoxic drug safety cabinets, clean work stations, pharmaceutical isolators, laminar air flow systems and airborne containment systems.

We are also accredited for biological conditions (air impaction methods) testing for yeast, mould and bacteria. We test spray booths and have registered IQP’s (independent qualified person) to generate and sign 12A forms for spray booths and ducted fume cabinets for the purpose of building BWOF.

Out of our scope of accreditation we test compressed air for dew point, microbial, air quality and oil content in manufacturing environments.


Our IANZ accredited testing and certification services are provided under the following accreditation number:
