ISO 9001 certification does not evaluate the technical competence of a supplier or technician. Evaluation of a supplier against ISO 9001 does not assure your company or your customers that the test, inspection, or calibration data are accurate and reliable. To ensure continued compliance, A2LA accredited facilities are regularly reexamined and are also required to participate in regular proficiency tests to ensure they maintain their standards of technical expertise.
For the manufacturer or supplier, choosing a technically competent laboratory minimizes the risk of producing or supplying a faulty product.
ISO/IEC 17025 certifications are recognized worldwide as stipulated in the International Laboratory Accreditation System (ILAC).
Avoid Expensive Retesting
Testing of products and materials can be expensive and time consuming. If not done correctly, costs go up and your reputation as a manufacturer can go down. Choosing an ISO/IEC 17025 laboratory minimizes that risk!
