ISO/IEC 17025 accredited testing services
Many economies require accreditation prior to the acceptance of EMC test results for certain approvals, examples include; the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, and many South American economies.
Laboratory accreditation provides formal recognition to competent laboratories, thus providing a ready means for customers to identify and select reliable testing services. To maintain this recognition, our laboratories are re-evaluated regularly by NVLAP to ensure our continued compliance with requirements, and to check that our standard of operation is being maintained. As a condition of accreditation, we are also required to participate in relevant proficiency testing programs between reassessments, as a further demonstration of our technical competence.
NVLAP is an ILAC MRA signatory
The ILAC Arrangement supports international trade by promoting international confidence and acceptance of accredited laboratory and inspection results. Technical barriers to trade, such as the retesting and inspection of products each time they enter a new economy would be reduced.
Quote from ISO-ILAC-IAF Communique on 17025
“A laboratory’s fulfillment of the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 means the laboratory meets both the technical competence requirements and management system requirements that are necessary for it to consistently deliver technically valid test results and calibrations. The management system requirements in ISO/IEC 17025 (Section 4) are written in language relevant to laboratory operations and meet the principles of ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems — Requirements.”
