November 2016 marks an important milestone for Ludlum Measurements’ calibration laboratories located in Knoxville, Tennessee and Sweetwater, Texas. Both facilities underwent comprehensive testing, evaluation, and survey as part of the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation’s ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 certification process. Both facilities successfully met all requirements and may proudly display their individual certificates. You can see a copy of the certificates here.
The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) is an independent agency recognized world-wide for its testing integrity, objectivity, and adherence to internationally-accepted standards. Reliance on these standards provides a meaningful measure of competency for the specific field of calibration, and results in a higher level of confidence and satisfaction for customers.
