AccuStandard (USA) has now added Sulphur Standards to the ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO Guide 34 scopes of Accredition.
Accreditation to ISO Guide 34 “General Requirements for the Competence of Reference Material Producers” is designed to ensure competency in the manufacture of reference materials and assurance that international guidelines are followed in the production and assignment of material property values. Accreditation to ISO Guide 34 involves not only technical competence and good quality management practices but adds verification of critical production management specific to reference material producers.
ISO/IEC 17025 is the single most important standard for calibration and testing laboratories. Laboratories that are accredited to this international standard have demonstrated that they are technically competent and able to produce precise and accurate test and/or calibration data. There are two main clauses in ISO/IEC 17025 – Management Requirements and Technical Requirements. Management requirements are related to the operation and effectiveness of the quality management system within the laboratory, and this clause has similar requirements to ISO 9001. Technical requirements address the competence of staff, testing methodology, equipment and quality, and reporting of test and calibration results.
