PTL ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accreditation Complete

Particle Technology Labs, the premier particle characterization service laboratory and advisory company is pleased to announce a change in accreditation status from ISO/IEC 17025:2005 to the most updated ISO/IEC 17025:2017 criteria. From the ISO.org website, “In order to reflect the latest changes in market conditions and technology, the new edition of the standard encompasses the activities and new ways of working of laboratories today. It covers technical changes, vocabulary and developments in IT techniques and takes into consideration the latest version of ISO 9001 on quality management.”

ISO/IEC 17025 is an internationally recognized quality standard for calibration and testing laboratories. Accreditation to this standard asserts that the laboratory is competent to conduct specific testing as detailed on the certificate of accreditation. For an organization to be ISO 17025 accredited, its facility must undergo a rigorous independent assessment which evaluates the quality management system, training practices, testing programs, and instrument maintenance processes.

This accreditation assures PTL customers that laboratory operations, personnel training, equipment calibration, maintenance, and operation and quality assurance systems are in compliance with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 requirements.

“Particle Technology Labs is dedicated to providing the highest quality service to our customers. One way that we do this is to continually improve and build upon our laboratory practices and quality systems. Securing this accreditation is only a part of the commitment that we keep to our customers, providing the best value and highest standards in particle characterization services.” – Richard J. Karuhn, President
