It is a prestigious designation that recognizes our testing competence as an independent commercial testing laboratory. Learn more about the specifics and importance of the accreditation.
What is ISO/IEC 17025?
ISO/IEC 17025 is the single most important standard for calibration and testing laboratories around the world. It was first issued in 1999 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Laboratories that are accredited to this international standard have demonstrated that they are technically competent and able to produce precise and accurate test and/or calibration data.
This accreditation is a voluntary, third party-reviewed process. As part of the accreditation process, an auditor thoroughly evaluates a laboratory’s quality management system (QMS). They also observe all accredited tests on a regular basis to ensure continued technical competence and compliance.
The Importance of ISO/IEC 17025
As a global leader in analytical testing, this accreditation is important to us because it recognizes our testing competence and expertise. It also further establishes our commitment to quality and continuous improvement. So, we view it as an integral part of our promise to help our customers achieve the highest standards of product quality by providing accurate, reliable, and repeatable materials testing results through Trust, Technology, and Turnaround.
