Scantek, a leader in sound and vibration measuring equipment sales, service, and calibration announces the NVLAP ISO 17025 re-accreditation of their in-house calibration laboratory. Mr. Steve Marshall, past president of Scantek, led the team effort to gain this stringent re-certification as part of his closing responsibilities before his upcoming full retirement.
Why NVLAP ISO 17025 is Important
The National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) is a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) program in the USA which provides an unbiased third-party test and evaluation program to accredit laboratories in their respective fields to the ISO 17025 standard. NVLAP is an International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) signatory.
NVLAP accreditation signifies that a calibration laboratory has demonstrated that it operates in accordance with NVLAP management and technical requirements pertaining to quality systems; personnel; accommodation and environment; test and calibration methods; equipment; measurement traceability; sampling; handling of test and calibration items; and test and calibration reports. In short, this designation assures Scantek’s calibration customers that they are receiving professional services that are of the highest quality and that these services are well documented and reliable.
The Scantek Calibration Lab
Since 2003, the Scantek Calibration Lab has been accredited by the NVLAP under the Laboratory Code 200625-0.
