ISO/IEC 17025 Forensic Calibration Accreditation
What is ISO/IEC 17025 Forensic Calibration Accreditation?
Driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal throughout the world. In the United States, all states have imposed a legal threshold of .08 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC).
Breath testing is the most common test for determining an individual’s BAC and equipment used for this testing must provide accurate results.
Accreditation provides public confidence in a laboratory’s ability to calibrate breath alcohol equipment used during the testing procedure.
