ISO 17025 Accredited Calibration Services
What is ISO/IEC 17025?
ISO 17025 is the main international standard for the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories that where put. It was originally put in place starting in 1999 to insure consistency for calibration laboratories, ISO 17025 has since been revised 2 times once in 2005 and to date the latest one is the ISO 17025:2017 McCune’s has been ISO17025:2017 approved by the ANAB Accrediting body.
International Standard for Lab Competence
ISO is a non-governmental entity that is recognized internationally. Labs use ISO 17025 to implement a quality management system, with the goal of improving their ability to be consistent with producing valid results. Once a lab has been accredited to ISO 17025 reports are more easily accepted globally, because the standards have been set by an international body. Since the standard is about competence, accreditation is simply the formal recognition of a demonstration of that competence. ISO 17025 allows us, as a calibration lab to show just how competent we are by using highly technical and extremely accurate measurement procedures. With an accredited calibration, an uncertainty budget will be provided with each calibration. The budget provides all the information that you need to understand the full extent of the factors that the environment may have reliability of your instrument final reading.
