What does accreditation mean?
Accredited calibration Labs are Labs which are certified from national accreditation authorities. The labs have to apply for accreditation and have to pass a certain audit to be listed as accredited lab and registered under a certain registration number. The audit has to be repeated regularly and extended if the field of the activities of the lab will change.
The advantage for the customer:
The accreditation confirms that the lab fulfils the requirement of the standard ISO 17025 “Calibration and Testing Laboratories”. This guaranties a constant quality of measurements on a high level. The customer can rely on the results of certificates supplied by the calibrating lab.
