ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is an International Standard designed for the accreditation of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. It includes quality management system requirements along with technical requirements to ensure that each laboratory is equipped to perform particular tests and calibration activities. This accreditation confirms that Chant Engineering Co. Inc. demonstrates technical competence for a defined testing scope and the operation of a laboratory quality management system, in respect to Force Calibration.
Chant Engineering is an internationally recognized calibration facility with precision equipment traceable back to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Calibration Department includes five technicians, who are on-call 24/7 for customer service calls. Utilizing seven sets of calibration gear, the technicians regulate all makes and models of machines, calibrating from 1,000 to 1.5 million lbs. in tension, and up to 3.3 million lbs. in compression.
As a result of the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation, Chant Engineering is now able to offer worldwide testing and/or calibration services to both public and private organizations that require calibration from accredited laboratories. It provides such businesses with the benefit of receiving an “Accredited Calibration Certificate”, which documents measurement traceability and measurement uncertainty.
The achievement of this new accreditation illustrates Chant Engineering’s commitment to providing and maintaining extraordinary calibration services, in addition to continually improving our instrumentation, data quality, and laboratory effectiveness for our worldwide customers.
