Laboratory accreditation is the formal recognition of an organization's technical competency to perform specific or types of tests or calibrations. Accreditation is given only to those laboratories that can demonstrate an initial and on-going competence in their field of testing or calibration, and that conform to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025: General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 requires that the laboratory meets the management and technical systems requirements of the standard, that the laboratory has adequate equipment to perform the tests or calibrations, and that the laboratory facility has adequate personnel with the technical competence to perform the tests or calibrations. Our teams of metrology and quality experts ensure that every lab meets internal as well as external assessment continuously.
Transcat has over 50 years of experience in providing calibration services. Quality has been part of our culture throughout our history. Whether it was being the first commercial calibration lab to earn its ISO-9000 registration to being one of the first labs in the country to be accredited to 17025, we understand the importance of the accreditation process. We have one of the widest scopes of accreditation in the industry within our network of labs across North America.
