QUALISURFAL is a Special Interest Group established under the umbrella of QUALICOAT (Association for Quality Control in the Lacquering, Painting and Coating Industry) and QUALANOD (Association for Quality Control in the Anodizing Industry). QUALISURFAL comprises separate sections for Anodizing, Coating and Decoration.
All testing laboratories and inspection bodies approved by QUALICOAT are members of the Coating section of QUALISURFAL. They have to be accredited to ISO 17025 for the tests prescribed by QUALICOAT and to participate to interlaboratory tests. Testing and inspections bodies are regularly audited against the operational requirements of QUALICOAT. Plenary meetings are held once a year, alternately in each of the label organisations’ member countries.
