TO                  All Access Analytical Clients 
FROM            Ashley B. Amick, General Manager  
RE                 Upcoming Regulatory Compliance Fee 

 All Access Analytical Clients:

Hopefully this correspondence finds all of you doing well and enjoying a prosperous 2018.  We are writing to let you know about a small fee structure change that will be put in place in the near future.  On August 1st   Access Analytical will begin adding a 5% Regulatory Compliance Fee to all outgoing invoices.  This fee is being added to help offset the ever-increasing costs that we incur doing business as a certified laboratory.  The fee is intended to help cover expenses such as: 

    Maintaining state certification of our laboratory and all of the associated ancillary costs.  These costs are items such as DHEC certification fees,     annual PE sample costs, upkeep of QC/QA documentation, etc..         
     Proper disposal of laboratory waste generated from various analytical procedures, disposal of completed water and/or soil samples, waste acid  disposal, etc..          
    Maintaining compliance with all current health and safety regulations needed to maintain a safe work environment for employees and minimize             environmental pollution from laboratory operations. 
 Rest assured that we do not take any decision to increase fees lightly and have put a great deal of thought into this decision.  In the end, we feel that attention to the above items simply cannot be compromised and a small price increase is our only option in this case.  I hope everyone can appreciate our position on this matter.  If you have any questions at all I can be reached via telephone at 803-454-8983 or via email at   aamick @ axs-inc.com
