Laboratory accreditation uses criteria and procedures specifically developed to determine technical competence of staff, validity and appropriateness of test methods, traceability of measurements and calibrations to national standards, and quality assurance of test and calibration data. Trace Analytics is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 which covers the same quality management system principles that are addressed in ISO 9001 registration. Accreditation to this rigorous standard means that our laboratory meets both the technical competence requirements and management system requirements necessary for us to make and deliver technically valid test results. Certificate #0322-01.
The scope of accreditation of a laboratory indicates the lab’s general competency and capabilities by recognizing the successful completion of the accrediting agency’s evaluation process for specific gases, methods, and air specifications. It is useful to review a laboratory’s Scope of Accreditation to determine if the lab has been evaluated for the pertinent areas that you as a customer may require. Trace Analytics’ Scope provides a broad range of capabilities and represents additional scrutiny in the accreditation process.
