International Organization for Standardization – ISO 17025 Laboratory Accreditation
Our highest level of calibration is A2LA ISO 17025 laboratory accreditation. This is a standard that takes the fundamental ISO 9000 certification requirements and adds more extensive protocols for accredited testing laboratories. It is the most rigorous quality standard in the measurement industry and very difficult to attain, much more so then a standard ISO 9000 certification. The majority of providers operating today have not achieved this level of enfranchisement.
At J&W Instruments, we pursued A2LA ISO 17025 and International Electromechanical Commission – IEC accreditation because of their distinguished reputation in the field of metrology calibration and testing. We have one of the most well-established A2LA accredited labs in Minnesota, servicing the entire state, plus all of Wisconsin and parts of South Dakota, North Dakota, Northern Illinois, Iowa and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
We provide comprehensive world-class services in ISO laboratory accreditation and lab related training based on internationally accepted criteria for competence and traceability.
