Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) was successfully audited and approved for continued accreditation by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025-2005. The scope of LTI's A2LA accreditation was also expanded for mechanical testing and calibration services. Bore micrometers were added to the calibration certificate. The expanded mechanical testing certificate now includes:
Fatigue Crack Growth
A2LA is an internationally recognized standard for competence of testing in the industry. All three of LTI's A2LA accreditation certificates, Mechanical Testing (including Metallographic Evaluation and Dimensional Testing), Chemical Testing and Calibration, are valid until March 31, 2017. Laboratory Testing Inc. first received A2LA accreditation in 1989 and has continued to expand the scope of accredited services over the past 25 years.
"The owners of this family-run business are committed to reinvesting back into the company. As Lab Testing continues to add new equipment and capabilities, we also pursue accreditation for the services to meet the full needs of our customers," said Frank Peszka, Director of Quality.
ISO /IEC 17025 identifies all the requirements that testing and calibration laboratories must meet in order to demonstrate that they operate a quality system, are technically competent and can generate technically valid results. These clearly defined requirements help laboratories in developing their quality, administrative and technical operations and guide customers, regulators and accrediting bodies in confirming the technical competence of these labs.
