Product Certification and Laboratory Accreditation

We offer a single accreditation program for product certification accreditation, laboratory accreditation, and inspection body accreditation. Testing and inspection activities are integral to operations of product certification organizations.

Both ISO/IEC 17025 - General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories,
and ISO/IEC 17020 - Conformity assessment — Requirements for the operation of various types of bodies performing inspection,
are referenced in ISO/IEC 17065 Conformity assessment — Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services.

Although it is not mandatory to obtain accreditation in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 or ISO/IEC 17020 to show evidence of conformance with ISO/IEC 17065, organizations that attain these accreditations reduce risk, gain competitive advantage, and increase recognition outside their current field of operation.

Accreditation under ISO/IEC 17065 and ISO/IEC 17025, or ISO/IEC 17020 provides organizations with nationally and internationally recognized accreditation while streamlining the accreditation process for multidisciplinary organizations:
