About EMC


Earth Materials Classification (EMC) is an independently owned and operated soil testing laboratory based in O’Connor, Western Australia.  Operating since 2010 and NATA Accredited since 2011, EMC provides high-quality testing services to clients from the civil, mining and resources industries and supporting engineering and geotechnical consultants.


Quality Assurance


EMC have developed quality systems and procedures that comply with ISO/IEC 17025, and all laboratory operations are carried out in accordance to these requirements. Since the initial NATA Assessment in 2011, EMC have successfully undertaken and passed additional systems and technical audits by NATA in 2012, 2013 and 2014, reassuring our commitment to quality.


To further ensure technical competence, EMC participates in proficiency testing programs run by providers such as Proficiency Testing Australia (PTA) and ConLAPS.  These programs offer an opportunity to analyse and compare test results with other laboratories.  EMC’s results in these tests have always fallen well within the expected range for all tests.


EMC also implements regular in-house proficiency testing and training to assess and improve the performance of technical staff.
