Laboratory and Product Certification Accreditation

ANAB offers a single accreditation program for conformity assessment bodies providing product certification, testing and/or inspection services. Testing and inspection activities are integral to operations of product certification organizations. Many companies seeking ISO/IEC 17065 accreditation also require accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 for their labs. This is also the case with ISO/IEC 17020 for inspection agencies.  Our program offers combined assessments in both instances.

Both ISO/IEC 17025General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and ISO/IEC 17020Conformity assessment — Requirements for the operation of various types of bodies performing inspection, are referenced in ISO/IEC 17065Conformity assessment — Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services. Although ISO/IEC 17025 or ISO/IEC 17020 accreditation is not mandatory for conformance with ISO/IEC 17065, organizations attain these accreditations to reduce risk, gain competitive advantage, and increase recognition outside their current field of operation.

Our ISO/IEC 17065/17025/17020 accreditation provides organizations with nationally and internationally recognized accreditation while streamlining the accreditation process for multidisciplinary organizations:
