Recognition Programmes

Laboratory Recognition Programme


The Laboratory Recognition Programme (LRP) aims to establish a network of private testing laboratories recognised by Singapore Food Agency (SFA). These laboratories are recognised for their capability to support the industries’ food safety testing needs. LRP also serves to provide an oversight in ensuring the quality of test results produced by the recognised laboratories.

Food industry can engage the testing services of SFA’s recognised laboratories, to meet your food testing needs i.e. in-house quality testing, export certificate testing.
Key criteria for private laboratories to be recognised by SFA include:
  • Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 by the Singapore Accreditation Council or accreditation bodies under the ILAC mutual recognition arrangements (MRA), for test methods covered under the scope of recognition;
  • Fulfilling on-site verification by SFA (compliance to stipulated requirements and suitability of tests to support purpose of testing) or foreign Competent Authority where required; and
  • Maintaining laboratory competency through regular participation in proficiency testing programmes
See Application for private laboratories interested to find out more information in applying for the programme.




To apply as a recognised laboratory, the applicant shall meet the requirements of the LRP Terms and Conditions which minimally includes:

  1. Having local testing facilities to support the programme
  2. Being accredited by Singapore Accreditation Council or any accreditation body under the ILAC mutual recognition arrangements (MRA) to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard
NOTE: Recognition will only be granted to laboratories that meet the LRP requirements upon SFA’s assessment and verification.

  1. Applicant laboratory's degree of compliance with the requirements;
  2. Complexity of scope of recognition applied;
  3. Availability of applicant laboratory and SFA officers to conduct the on-site verification check and closure of findings highlighted by SFA.

LRP Certification Mark


The Laboratory Recognition Programme (LRP) certification mark is a flask with its outline completed by a leaf and an orange tick. The flask and leaf depict the recognised laboratories’ comprehensive and stringent tests, and symbolically represent food. The orange tick in the heart of the mark depicts SFA’s recognition and draws focus to the “LRP” acronym.


Upon written approval from SFA, laboratories recognised under LRP will be able to use the LRP certification mark on their test reports and other materials to showcase their recognition status.


Recognised laboratories may contact SFA via the online feedback form for permission to use the LRP certification mark, as well as further information and resources related to it. Under category, select ‘Laboratory Recognition Programme (LRP)’.
