ISO/IEC 17025 Calibration Laboratory Accreditation

What is ISO/IEC 17025 Calibration Laboratory Accreditation?

The ANAB calibration laboratory accreditation program is designed to promote confidence in calibration and improve quality through assuring compliance with international standard ISO/IEC 17025.

Our goal through accreditation is the increased acceptance of calibrations across all industries and improve the quality of calibration laboratories and the data they produce. ANAB accreditation has a long history of acceptance from government, clinical, chemical, construction, automotive, aerospace, electrical, food, pharmaceutical, suppliers, and regulatory authorities.

Accreditation will help move your organization toward global recognition, consistent operations, and a competitive advantage by providing assurance in the quality of calibrations with the objective of promoting confidence in data and measurement.

ANAB accreditation managers and calibration experts have practical experience in the field and are often viewed as peers in the calibration and metrology world. The ANAB calibration laboratory accreditation program is well-established and should be your choice for accreditation.
